FIABCI harps on knowledge-sharing, technology in construction
The International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI) Nigeria chapter has urged practitioners in the built sector to improve on knowledge sharing about new models and technologies that could uplift the industry.
President of the chapter, Mr. Adeniji Adele, gave the charge at the first Business Marketing Network Meeting in Lagos.
Adele said: “We all know that in this age of digitalisation, the essence of networking has become paramount and we all need to share knowledge on latest innovations to stay abreast on new knowledge and technologies being used in the construction industry globally, while we also work on how these innovations can be introduced in our country to boost the economy.”
The forum was organised to showcase the best in the construction industry and share ideas towards making Nigeria a better place to live and work.
He noted that in the past years, the chapter organised different activities, seminars as well as webinars on property rights in Nigeria, adding that the proposed Property Scorecard Research for 2021, will be launched by next year.
On his part, FIABCI World President, Jordi Ribo, encouraged members, not to relent in setting standards for real estate business.
He said that real estate sector is a pillar that the society is rest upon and challenged members to take a share of the world’s challenges and be part of the solution.
Ribo said: “All economies and societies these days face economic challenges, the challenge of sustainable development in the 21st century.
“The priority of any country is not only growing just for the sake of it, and therefore the aim of the business people should be something more than making money; it should be to create and contribute.”
Partners to the event were Frank Knight, Alaro City, Elalan construction, First Investment Development Company (FIDC), John Holt and other real estate services consultants, who in their various presentations showcased products currently in the market.
