PARIS, FRANCE, September 28, 2017: 'Excelling in a fast-changing world' will be the theme of this year's MIPIM Asia Summit, the annual property leaders' summit in Asia Pacific that takes place in Grand Hyatt Hotel Hong Kong, 28-29 November.

In his opening keynote speech, Louis Kuijs, Head of Asia Economics, Oxford Economics, will give an overview of the economic outlook for Asia in a fast-changing world. Oxford Economics is a commercial venture with Oxford University's business college to provide economic forecasting and modelling services.

"The Asia Pacific region continues to be on everyone's radar and companies and investors are finding themselves in an increasingly complex environment, amid a set of macroeconomic factors ranging from the continued low interest rate environment and geopolitical tension," Louis Kuijs said. "Given this backdrop, what do the market participants need to do in order to stay ahead of the game?"

MIPIM Asia Summit 2017 is bringing together more than 90 regional and international speakers to examine emerging industry trends.

The summit will feature presentations analysing a world that is subject to unprecedented change: economic challenge such as China's 'one belt one road' initiative, digital revolution with the impact of technology in the real estate industry, transformation of shopping centres into a leisure destinations, these are some of the topics which will be discussed by experts in the MIPIM Asia Summit 2017 programme.

"The MIPIM Asia Summit unites leading industry professionals and the thought-provoking sessions and keynote presentations explore where global capital and investment flows are going, and why," noted Ronan Vaspart, Director of MIPIM markets.

The MIPIM Asia Summit is derived from the global Reed MIDEM feature real estate showcase, MIPIM Cannes, which is the world's leading property market summit.
