PARIS, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MIPIM Asia, the property leaders' summit
in Asia Pacific, features a high-profile conference programme to enlighten
real estate decision-making in Asia Pacific. The premium line-up of more than
85 speakers and 30 sessions will provide the 600+ delegates with the
opportunity to examine to what extent property fundamentals and retail
perspectives have reached a turning point in the region.

Secretary for Administration, The Government of the Hong Kong Special
Administrative Region, will deliver the official MIPIM Asia welcome speech on
November 5.

The Opening Keynote will be delivered on November 5 by Ronnie C. Chan, the

retailers/investors to enter the market?".

On November 6, Graeme Maxton, futurist, economist and member of the
prestigious Club of Rome, will address the current global economic situation

programme includes two interactive workshops, one on the role of Asian markets
in the global investor portfolio, the other on the choice of themes, sectors
and places to play. Real estate institutional investors such as Washington
State Investment Board, CPPIB Asia and Ping An Trust Co. Ltd, will take the
opportunity of this unique educational platform to discuss their latest
investment approaches in Asia Pacific.

The MIPIM Asia property sessions are completed with insightful conferences on
retail trends. Retail themes include the areas of focus for commercial real
estate and a landlord's perspective on retail. On November 6, attention will
