The Minister explained why he visited the EXPO REAL: “This is my fourth year at EXPO REAL, because German investors are the biggest investors in the Dutch housing market. This market is very attractive for investors, we are experiencing ongoing high demand for rental apartments in the free market sector. We are very happy to have long-standing relations with Ger-man investors and we are looking forward to getting to know more of them – and for that EXPO REAL is the best place.”
