Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, is China’s western economic centre.

Economic growth recovered thereafter then slowed in response to the nationwide economic slowdown from 2013 to 2015.

Hong Kong Residential 2H 2017

Hong Kong Residential 2H 2017

04 October 2017

Several critical factors continue to propel Hong Kong’s residential market forwards including negative real interest rates, a buoyant Hang Seng Index, limited availability of stock and ample liquidity alongside attractive mortgage packages offered by banks. Volumes in the luxury (1,000 sq ft plus) bracket have picked up over the past quarter in both Hong Kong Island and Kowloon partly due to new project launches but equally to an active secondary market. Across the market as a whole, however, volumes are being supported by primary launches of units below 430 sq ft (Class A) in the New Territories, usually financed by the developer. Such recent launches of Class A units have included Eden Manor in Fanling (624 Class A units from HK$15,543 to HK$19,013 per sq ft), Eight Regency in Tuen Mun (221 Class A units from HK$15,968 to HK$17,103 per sq ft) and COO Residence in Tuen Mun (204 Class A units from HK$14,537 to HK$19,940 per sq ft).

 
 
 
Jakarta Residential 2H 2017

Jakarta Residential 2H 2017

04 October 2017

Jakarta is Indonesia’s economic powerhouse, priding itself on being the nation’s main commercial, political and business hub. Jakarta follows a similar trajectory to Indonesia’s GDP growth rate and has even historically maintained figures higher than Indonesia. Its annual GDP growth rate for the second quarter of 2017 sat at 5.96%, outperforming Indonesia’s result of 5.01%. Such performance is due in large part to the city’s improved household consumption in light of an overall optimism in an accelerating economy. In fact, Jakarta’s consumer sentiment index for the second quarter of 2017 reached 116.97, a positive improvement from the first quarter result of 100.84.
