20:30 - 22:00 Real Estate Dialogue: Economists VS Developers

(Dong Yu Grand Ballroom B, Level 1, ICC)

Whenever real estate prices soar, markets wonder whether the cause is a speculative bubble that will burst with widespread detrimental effect as has been seen in Japan in 1991, Hong Kong in 1997 and as is being feared currently for the US. Are there lessons to be learned from the previous bubble bursts in other economies or is this a unique situation in Asia and particularly China? Are the regulatory policies of Chinese Government effective?
