This panel discussion will focus on the following issues: What are the most important factors driving current trends in global real estate investment? How are capital flows and human migration from China affecting real estate markets in Vancouver and elsewhere? Beyond the headlines, what does the research say?

This event will bring together experts from the International Monetary Fund, the real estate industry, the media, and the University of British Columbia to explain the forces that have so dramatically shaped the Vancouver real estate market in recent years. Its focus will be on providing contexts for understanding current patterns in Chinese investment and migration. What does today’s real estate market look like in historical perspective? Is the case of Vancouver exceptional, or is it symptomatic of broader trends?

This event is co-organized by the Centre for Urban Economics and Real Estate (CUERE) and the Centre for Chinese Research (CCR) of the University of British Columbia (UBC).
