Geo-political tensions and the ongoing tit-for-tat tariff war between the U.S. and China have recently brought into sharp focus the scale, increasing importance and complexity of the relationship between the U.S. and the Asia-Pacific. In order to provide some context for later discussions, Simon Smith, Savills’ Head of Research for Asia-Pacific will lead off by providing a brief introduction and presentation covering the following topics:
- Demographics and population
- Economic development, growth and scale
- Real estate and capital investment flows
- Emerging trends in tech, e-commerce, AI, manufacturing & logistics
The event was a lively and engaging forum with plenty of discussion, debate, shared views and experiences, with participation from the audience and with real estate experts in attendance from key markets across the Asia-Pacific.
This was a rare and not to be missed opportunity for any real estate or operations executive involved in the delivery of real estate solutions throughout the Asia-Pacific to talk to and hear from real estate experts who have forged successful careers in some of the world’s most diverse, dynamic and challenging real estate markets.
