AHURI is pleased to announce that Hon. Michael Sukkar MP, Assistant Minister to the Treasurer, will deliver a keynote address at the 2017 National Housing Conference during the plenary session on Friday 1 December at the International Convention Centre, Sydney.
Minister Sukkar, who has responsibility for the Government’s housing affordability measures, will outline what can be expected in 2018, and what role the Federal Government will continue to play in supporting Australians at all stages of the housing continuum.
Minister Sukkar’s address reflects the importance of affordable housing during a year in which the Federal Government has announced a number of major housing policy announcements, including the National Housing and Homelessness Agreement (NHHA); the National Housing Infrastructure Facility (NHIF); the National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC); encouraging Managed Investment Trusts to invest in affordable housing; and expanding tax incentives for affordable housing investments.
The Minister joins a strong line-up of political leaders at this year’s National Housing Conference which includes Senator Doug Cameron, Shadow Minister for Housing and Homelessness; Linda Burney, Shadow Minister for Human Services, and NSW Minister for Social Housing and Minister for the Prevention of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, Pru Goward.
