What does the future hold for Asia’s growth and development in purely economic terms. To be sure, no one can tell with exact precision. The experts warn that large built ups of bad debt will result in banks cutting their interest towards property financing. Leading landlords in Japan, China, India, Australia and other Asian countries are predicted to be forced into fire sales if they fail to refinance loans. This situation will result in more properties being placed on the market and drive values down further. There are even prophets of doom who have warned that the market downturn could see prices go below the cost of construction although the general belief is that most Asian cities will see a drop of 10 percent in values.

Closer to home, concerns over whether the local housing market is overheating and will lead to an asset bubble are raising question on whether there is a need for more tightening measures to curb speculative buying and ensure the market stays sustainable.

With such uncertainties that could afflict the future of real estate markets in the region, there is a dire need for all concerned parties to converge, discuss and propose recommendations on urgent actions to be taken to address such issues. This is to ensure that the future of real estate industry is properly managed and sustained for the benefits of our future generation.

From a broader sustainability perspective, it is acknowledged that the impacts of climate change and concerns over carbon emissions and the focus on renewable energy on the real estate and property development sector is bound to drive upper-middle and higher-end property market into challenging phase for provision of high quality services. There is a growing need to address new ways of construction, managing of facilities the use of green technologies etc. Both rural and urban development is being challenged to address and cater to these growing global challenges.

Asian Conference on Real Estate 2011 (ACRE 2011), the inaugural conference organised by UTHM under the auspicious of ISM Partnering Universities Committee aims to contribute to efforts to address these challenges. This conference will provide a common platform for knowledge sharing on the related conference sub-themes under the banner of sustainable growth and provide the much needed inter-disciplinary dialogue regarding the important and urgent issues facing the global real estate and property community as well as the public at large.
