IGE Chairman participated in the discussion of low cost housing project implementation.

MRTV conducted a panal discussion on the issue of low-cost housing project for civil servants by inviting the experienced persons from public and private sector. U Nay Aung, Chairman of IGE Group of Companies, participated in that discussion as an Executive of Myanmar Banks Association (Chairman of United Amara Bank) together with Officials from Ministry of Finance and Planning, Ministry of Construction, Naypyitaw City Development Committee, Myanmar Construction Entrepreneurs Association and Myanmar Economic Bank.

U Nay Aung discussed on project financing for developers and long term mortgage loan program for buyers at low interest rate and the requirement of law to generate for long term. “I thought there are two model for loan program, one is project financing for developers and another is  long-term loan for buyers at lower interest rate. I also have a plan for the  combination plan for two model,” he expressed in the discussion.

There is important fact to consider in providing loans. Currently,  loan period is 8 years or 10 years in the market.  We could consider to extend these period to 10 years or 15 years or 20 years so that the buyers would not have any stress for their loan. The next fact is to reduce the interest rates. The current interest rate for loan programs is 13 percent. If we want to reduce the interest rate, I think we have to develop a fund by private banks, foreign banks and Myanmar Economic Bank to be able to borrow the money at lower rate.  We would need to reduce the amount of down payment for buyer. Currently, customers have to pay 30 percent down payment of total amount. If possible, we could reduce to 20 or 10 percent,” he said. U Nay Aung also pointed out the Apartment Act to be developed which is essentially needed for bankers, developers and buyers for long term real estate development in Myanmar. Finally, He suggested to implement integrated township models in the outskirt of the cities.
