The first annual Real Estate Market & Outlook Conference 2016 (REMOC2016) was held this April at the Phnom Penh Hotel, with a host of the local and regional real estate industry leaders giving their outlooks on the state of the Cambodian real estate market. Realestate.com.kh caught up with Hoem Seiha, Director of Research, VTrust Appraisal Co., Ltd at REMOC2016 to get his 2 cents on the state of the current and future Cambodian property market prospects and, ultimately, Cambodian Property Market: The Big Picture! What topic will you speak to at REMOC2016, and why is it a key consideration for the Cambodian Real Estate sphere? At REMOC-2016 to be held on 1 April, I’m going to present to the audience about the macro perspectives on real estate industry: Cambodian Property Market: The Big Picture. Developers, policy makers and related key stakeholders need sound knowledge and in-depth insights into real estate sector at macro level so that they can together work to develop and, if any, curb with challenges in the sector. seiharemoc Construction and real estate sector has recently grown its importance to overall economy by contributing to creation of tens of thousands of jobs, pushing demand on mortgages to rise by 19 percent in 2014, and attracting US$ billions of real estate related FDIs that have spillover impacts on many other economic sectors. With my future outlook for this sector, even though real estate market has grown so quickly that it might pose potential risks and growth volatility, I foresee this sector will soon create a new economic engine alongside with the country’s key leading sectors such as garment, tourism and agriculture.
