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?

Asiain the Next 10 Years: From a Media's Perspective

(Peacock 1, Level 1, ICC)

What is the media forecast for Asia in the next ten years? What is the picture of Asia that is taking shape from its interviews with government leaders, economists, academics, business movers and shakers? Will the Asian economies tread a smooth or rocky path, and what will be the changes in economic dynamics and relationships in the Asia region, and between Asia and the rest of the world? What will change for the better in Asia and why?  What does it feel the strongest concern about changing for the worse in Asia and why? What will be the key opportunities and challenges for the media as the reporter and a catalyst for change in Asia in the next ten years? Does the media need to change itself in any way to address these and if so, how?
