What's On

Registration Closed

Since the masterplan to transform the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) into a global economic powerhouse was announced two years ago, a much-anticipated blueprint for the region was finally released by the Chinese government in February. Over the past two years, there has been an explosion of investor interest in the area. The combined transaction volume of RMB 17.5 billion (in 2016) in Guangzhou and Shenzhen has increased threefold (reaching RMB 54.6 billion in 2018) since the announcement of the initiative. Now that a clearer picture has been formed by the blueprint, the momentum of investment interest is expected to be maintained and expanded in the days ahead.

The Chamber is delighted to have invited Reed Hatcher, Head of Research, and Queeny So, Executive Director of Capital Markets, China from Cushman & Wakefield to speak on the most exciting markets and asset classes to watch for in the real estate investment scene. In their presentations, the speakers will cover some noteworthy opportunities brought on by the vibrant Tier-1 cities in the GBA including Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou. They will also share some of their insights on property investment trends in the GBA, as well as the reasons behind the rising investment interest for properties, particularly in Shenzhen and Guangzhou, arising from the government blueprint.

This event is a can't-miss for those who are looking to seize the investment opportunities brought by the GBA. Register early to avoid disappointment!
