Topics to be discussed:

  • How big is the threat of a Chinese property bubble?
  • And what is the appetite for regional and global funds to return to India? Is Indonesia the next BRIC?
  • How do global funds compete with domestic investors and access opportunities beyond prime commercial markets?
  • And what about Japan, what kind of opportunities exist post-Fukushima?
