The Bangladesh House Building Finance Corporation (BHBFC) is set to organise its first 'Housing Financing Fair-2017' next month to help disseminate information on services and advanced technologies of the housing sector to visitors and participants.

A total of 82 organisations including financial institutions, developers, building material manufacturers and LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas ) suppliers will participate in the fair, said BHBFC Managing Director (MD) Debasish Chakrabarty at a press conference at his office on Wednesday.

Housing and Public Works Minister Mosharraf Hossain will formally launch the three-day fair at Hotel Sonargaon on October 19.

Some foreign companies are also expected to participate in the expo which will help share technologies with the participants, said the BHBFC MD.

The fair will also show some apps to the visitors to provide primary knowledge about building a house, he added.

"We should follow advanced technologies like those of other developed countries to ensure quality, cost effectiveness and safety," he said.

The BHBFC has introduced different loan services for the clients. It will also launch housing loan for farmers. Such a loan project is now waiting for approval of the concerned ministry, he said.
