FIEC Press release : Housing Ministers meeting

Date 11/12/2013

Housing is at heart of EU’s environmental, social and economic challenges

Reacting to the conclusions of the 19th informal meeting of European Housing Ministers, which took place on 9th and 10th December in Bruxelles, FIEC President Thomas Schleicher pleads that housing should not be forgotten in relevant European action and support.

"I fully agree with the Housing Ministers’ statement that housing should be considered as an important factor for socio-economic recovery, a source of social and financial stability, as well as a major instrument in energy transition”, says Schleicher. "Consequently, I consider that such an important issue is worth a fully fledged Council meeting, on a regular basis.”
