China's divided property market sees regional growth
Figures this week showed a drop in property prices in most Chinese cities for a fifth straight month.
But in stark contrast to falls in the residential property market, the property firm Jones Lang LaSalle has highlighted 50 cities across China which it says offer substantial commercial real estate opportunities.
The China 50 are not major cities but they have a combined economic value close to $3tn (£1.89tn). Michael Klibaner is head of research, China at Jones Lang LaSalle in Hong Kong.
