Asia in the spotlight at MIPIM event in Paris - Paris - property event - property investors

Real estate opportunities opening in Asian markets, along with Asian investment flows to world markets, will be one of the highlights of next week’s MIPIM 2011 event in Paris, where China’s fourth largest city, Chongqing, will exhibit for the first time.

Filippo Rean, Director of MIPIM, said: “The first day of MIPIM 2011 will highlight the extraordinary growth potential of the Asian continent. China will receive special honours, with the presence of the country’s fourth largest city Chongqing, in the MIPIM exhibition area for the first time.”

He added: “A major economic powerhouse in China, with its 32 million inhabitants, Chongqing will be the topic of a lunch meeting and other discussions at which it will present its development projects to professionals wishing to examine new business opportunities.”

For its first attendance at MIPIM, a senior delegation of city administrators and developers from Chongqing will host an exclusive press conference on the city’s stand.

As well as being a growth market for real estate, Asia also has investors that are increasingly active on the international market. A conference will identify the expectations of these much sought after new investors by bringing together a panel of investment headliners such as Jin Seo, Head of the Korean Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance pension fund; Francois Trausch, Chief Executive Officer of  Asia-Pacific, GE Capital Real Estate; Satoru Yamashita, Vice President, Mitsui Fudosan Investment Advisors and Hans Vrensen, Director, Global Head of Global Research at DTZ.
