2018 has proved a challenging year for many companies affected by China financial deleveraging campaign and the US China trade war. Despite these headwinds opportunities have arisen with the opening up of certain sectors to increased international competition including automotive, finance, healthcare, manufacturing, services as well as the first China International Import Expo (CIIE) in November.

What impact have these had on the property market and how it might affect your business in Shanghai? Come along to listen to our panel of three industry experts who will share their insights with members and help you prepare for the next 12 months.

Hosted by the British Chamber Shanghai's Construction & Property Focus Group, this session will offer a comprehensive overview of the different sectors of China and more specifically Shanghai’s property market.

Key speakers:

  • Shaun Brodie, Head of Occupier Research, Greater China, Cushman & Wakefield, will talk about the office sector;
  • Ling Wei Tan, Vice President, Hotel Investment Sales, JLL, will focus on the hotel sector;
  • James Macdonald, Head of Research, China, Savills will offer an outlook for the retail property market

The event will conclude with a panel Q&A discussion session where speakers will share insights on additional topical content – the clampdown on the P2P market, residential property policies and the impact of proptech. Attendees are welcomed to send us your questions prior to the event.
