Housing Supply

A total of 21 000 residential units, of which 16 600 were private sector homes (excluding village houses) and 4 400 public rental housing flats, were completed in 2006.

Supporting Infrastructure

The infrastructure for supporting housing developments has been provided in a programmed and structured manner. To avoid delays in housing developments caused by lack of infrastructural facilities, the Government has adopted fast-track measures to ensure timely completion of these facilities. At present, there are nine such projects in different stages of implementation. A combined estimated cost of about $2.7 billion has been approved.
