RIYADH: Arab hous­ing and con­struc­tion min­is­ters will hold their 33rd ses­sion in the Saudi cap­i­tal to­day for talks on re­vamp­ing the hous­ing sec­tor in the Arab coun­tries, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease is­sued yes­ter­day. The min­is­ters, dur­ing the meet­ing to be chaired by Saudi Hous­ing Min­is­ter Ma­jid Al-Ho­gail, will dis­cuss mu­tual co­op­er­a­tion for de­vel­op­ing the sec­tor.

They will also dis­cuss is­sues that have been fol­lowed up by the Arab Hous­ing Coun­cil’s Ex­ec­u­tive Bureau, partly re­lated to man­ag­ing hous­ing com­plexes, cel­e­brat­ing the Arab Hous­ing Day, the Coun­cil’s web­site ser­vice as well as following up on hous­ing-re­lated res­o­lu­tions of Arab sum­mits.

The agenda in­cludes other top­ics, such as co­op­er­a­tion with the United Na­tions Hu­man Set­tle­ments Pro­gramme (UN-Habi­tat), co­or­di­na­tion in the field with re­gional and in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions, boost­ing joint Arab ac­tion at this level and realty fund­ing.

Fur­ther­more, the con­fer­ees will ex­am­ine in­for­ma­tion swap on pi­o­neer­ing hous­ing ven­tures, mat­ters re­lated to the Arab cen­ter for pro­tec­tion against earth­quakes and nat­u­ral catas­tro­phes, amend­ing some of the Coun­cil’s con­stituent law, to be in tan­dem with the Arab League re­forms. — KUNA
