China’s government has launched a few measures to cool down the domestic property mania. One of the measures is to build more social housing (Click HERE for a Reuters Story). The social housing is built to be rented to the low income families who are unable to afford to buy their own home. Accoridng to the release from NDRC, in 2010 the government will increase the building of social housing to about 5 million units, which accounts to about 30% of the total new house starting. Such is a big jump from 2009. In the foreseeable future (2011 and 2012), the government will continue to build about 5 million new units every year.
