CBRE and attendees will explore China’s economic development to boost China’s Real Estate Transformation
November 11th, 2013, Beijing —Today, CBRE, the world’s leading commercial real estate services and investment firm, announced that it will sponsor two conferences being arranged by the The Economist in China in December 2013, namely the China Summit and The Bellwether Series 2013: China. These conferences will address issues associated with China’s economy, societal development and other relevant topics influencing the continued economic and social transformation in China.
The Economist holds the annual China Summit to survey China’s opportunities, pressing issues and macro developments across its economy, politics and society. This year, the summit is themed “The Chinese Dream: red capitalism, green cities, blue skies?” and will journey from this central starting point and explore how reforms in key areas will affect the overall business environment in China going forward. Business leaders, policymakers, academics and observers will get together to discuss, debate and learn about the opportunities and challenges of doing business in China. The Bellwether Series 2013: China will explore diverse issues including the global financial landscape and what they mean for China’s future. The two-day event will be held, respectively on December 5th and 6th 2013, at Sofitel Wanda in Beijing.
As a sponsor, CBRE will attend the conferences with a distinguished line-up including a branded booth where the latest research reports will be released. Four senior management executives will also be present:
• Chris Brooke, Chairman & CEO, CBRE, China
• Ivan Poon, President, CBRE, China
• Nick Axford, Executive Director, Global Head of Research, CBRE
• Frank Chen, Executive Director, Head of CBRE Research, China
As a session panelist, Frank Chen will participate in The Bellwether Series 2013: China’s session “Paying for China’s Cities” to share his insights regarding the opportunities and challenges that China’s rapid urbanization is creating with respect to the real estate industry.
