<Vastgoed Belang joins EPF

Amsterdam, Brussels, 9 March 2016

Jan Kamminga and Co Koning, Chairman and Managing Director of Vastgoed Belang, said "In the Netherlands we have experience of EU real estate policy because the EU has been the catalyst for liberalisation of the Dutch property market. EU state aid rules have limited the freedom of social housing companies to use their accumulated subsidies to compete with private landlords for middle-income tenants and EU economic governance is targeting counterproductive rent controls. Our membership of EPF will enable active private Dutch real estate involvement in the making of EU policy."

John Frederiksen and Reinhold Lennebo, President and Chairman of the Managing Committee of EPF, said "Vastgoed Belang is the biggest representative of organised real estate interests in The Netherlands. We look forward to working with Vastgoed Belang and, through it, with the Dutch component of European government."
