China: General market overview

For over a decade, the PRC’s real estate market has made a profound impact on the country’s economy.

An extensive amount of inbound investment restriction policies have also been abolished, which significantly encourages foreign investment in real estate.

New opportunities have emerged for foreign investors as the central government changes its attitude towards foreign real estate investments.
