However, the housing construction sector embarrassing is that the situation in the real estate downturn, many local governments to abandon the construction of affordable housing. Changed to affordable housing "by the two."
Small size, low-cost affordable housing by the local government into low-cost housing construction, management, a number of large units are affordable housing as a local government to sell real estate. At the same time, some local governments to suspend the construction of affordable housing instead of market-oriented acquisitions.
In this regard, Jiang Weixin said the affordable housing in a certain period of time is still the domestic housing security system is a necessary component. Local governments can be the basis to adjust the actual situation of local affordable housing construction, but to insist on the building.

And had been, there is news that the sector may be issued only in the short term a "housing Protection Ordinance" to protect the existing housing of some good practices to consolidate down. Construction of housing and urban and rural areas to increase housing security legislation, and also indicates that covered the whole era of housing security.

To this end, because of price cuts on some social issues, local government departments to guide the buyers in accordance with the contract and take the legal channels. At the same time, real estate enterprises should also shoulder social responsibility and a positive sale. State support for small and medium-size general merchandise sales of housing and at the same time tighten the financial support of housing developers, especially in construction projects in support of credit funds.
