PUTRAJAYA: The Prime Minister is poised to address the issue of affordable homes in the 2013 Budget, the Housing and Local Government Minister revealed.
Datuk Seri Chor Chee Heung said Datuk Seri Najib Razak was equally concerned about providing affordable homes for the people in the country.
Affordable homes are units priced between RM120,000 to RM300,000.
"The Prime Minister will say something in the budget which will reflect his concern," he told reporters at the ministry's Hari Raya gathering, here, today.
Also present was ministry secretary-general Datuk Arpah Abdul Razak.
The 2013 Budget will be tabled by the Prime Minister on September 28.
In the meantime, Chor's ministry would comb through ideas derived from discussions with the Real Estate, Housing and Developers Association (REHDA) and Association of House Buyers and Architects Association on providing affordable homes, before presenting it to the cabinet next week as a guide.
