See what's ahead while you can still react

With one of the fastest growing economies in the world, China has become a magnet for U.S. and other foreign investors looking for a profitable return on their next real estate investment. While the rewards can be great, so too are the risks. Many real estate investors who are considering venturing into China are astounded by the variety of challenges, including investment restrictions, pending REIT regulations, and more. Plus, the unique qualities of China's corporate culture can present a multitude of difficulties for outside investors.

Don't be blind-sided by government tightening on foreign investment

In recent months the government has:

  • designed tighter regulations to reduce the amount of money foreign property buyers can borrow
  • raised interest rates
  • increased taxes
  • reduced the amount of deposits banks can lend

Plus, new regulations are speculated to
unfold in Spring 2007 that may change foreign investment.

This publication will explore, interpret,
and analyze how to navigate recent government restrictions and prepare for the impact of future regulations.

In this title on Real Estate Investments in China, the American Conference Institute has assembled an exceptional faculty of practitioners specializing in China real estate, including: China real estate investors, attorneys, advisors, and analysts from China and America.

  • Learn best practices using ADR to resolve disputes with Chinese business entities
