The fast pace of urbanization in China was the catalyst for the boom for the China property market in the last two decades. Due to an estimate of potential demand of floor areas of 15-18 billion square meters, properties in China cities were also considered as necessities. It would be difficult to demonstrate a sustainable growth in the property sector. The recent default on bond interest repayment by a major property developer in China also reveals that the operating environment is challenging. With the slowdown of economy and pace of urbanization, property sales showed a declining trend since July 2021.

At this webinar, the speaker, specializes in real estate sector will go through the following topics:

• Macro-economic factors that may affect the China property market.
• Are further defaults in the sector likely?
• What do we expect on movement of property sales volume and price in China in the foreseeable future?
• When should we expect meaningful recovery of the sector?

The other speaker will discuss with Edwin on some topical issues related to the China property market. The two gentlemen will also answer questions from the participants before closing the webinar.
