During the past month, the 11th “Vivienda y Ciudad” (“Housing and City”) Annual Meeting was organized by the National Chamber of the Housing Development and Promotion Industry (CANADEVI), Jalisco chapter.
The objective of this meeting is to promote rapprochement, productive dialogue and strategic agreements between industry leaders and authorities, in order to promote housing in the state.

In addition, he added that, according to the projections of the organization, in the next 10 years the population of our destination will reach nearly one million people, which will significantly increase the demand for additional housing.
