Mexico´s Housing Revival
February 25th 2015
at the HQ of the
Council on Foreign Relations

In February 2013, President Enrique Peña Nieto (EPN) unveiled the National Housing Policy (Politica Nacional de Vivienda – PNV) directed at promoting a new paradigm of urban development and curbing the recent real estate and housing debacle. Since then, concrete measures have been taken to implement the objectives set out by the PNV: to achieve coherence and consistency among all public and private stakeholders; to shift towards a model of “sustainable and intelligent” urban development, to reduce the housing gap and provide decent housing for all.
So as to move these changes forward EPN has requested all governmentloans and grants to be reoriented towards well-planned and orderly urban growth as well as high-density vertical development within urban areas. The newly-created Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Urban Development (SEDATU) will provide and oversee among all stakeholders for greater and stronger housing credits andsubsidies, the creation of new mortgage programs and instruments, increasedterritorial reserves and housing developments certificates, among other advances.
Under the auspices of SEDATU, policy makers, bankers and experts will join to discuss the impact of the PNV on the sector and on Mexico´s growth and social cohesion. Heads of the national government organizations as well as housing, construction and infrastructure stakeholders will present and assess the revival of Mexico´s housing and urban development pinpointing investment opportunities in the light of the country´s demographics and socio-economic figures.
