I am a member of the International Real Estate Federation FIABCI and was recently in Malaysia attending the APREC 2011. Government & Industry experts provided insights into the individual real estate markets in the Asia Pacific region to real estate professionals from around the world. Attended by approximately 1000 delegates it was a great chance to gain some understanding of the thought processes of both Government & private industry professionals and real estate trends in this part of the world.
An added bonus was the opportunity to meet with Chris Tan, Managing Partner of Chur Associates Malaysia and author of ‘Turning Green – The journey of the Green Sugar Merchant’( a book I recommend ). Chris took time out of his busy schedule to give me a personalised tour of Kuala Lumpur. It was also a chance for me to enjoy some of the world renowned Malaysian cuisine!
