UEPC, FIEC and UIPI elected new co-chairs of the European Housing Forum
Today, the European Housing Forum has elected its new co-chairs. The European Construction Industry Federation (FIEC), the European Union of Developers and House Builders (UEPC) and the International Union of Property Owners (UIPI) will take the lead for one year renewable.
The European Housing Forum is an informal platform gathering representative organisations of the entire housing sector – consumers, providers and professionals – with the aim of sharing their expertise and raising the issues that this sector faces towards the EU institutions.
Emmanuelle Causse, Head of Public Affairs of UIPI, Christine Le Forestier, Director of Economic and Legal Affairs of FIEC and Filiep Loosveldt, Managing Director of UEPC, who took over the challenge, stated:
“Our role as co-chairs will be to continue the work of the EHF in favour of affordable and decent housing in Europe. The role of the Forum is not only to promote the exchange of information among the housing stakeholders, but also to increase understanding and raise awareness at EU level of the housing dimension of relevant EU issues. The housing sector is a significant sector at all levels of policy-making. The European Housing Forum is looking forward to further work in close cooperation with the EU institutions, notably with the European Parliament’s URBAN intergroup, as soon as its renewal is being confirmed.”
