Following a similar trend witnessed over the past three years, Beijing’s Grade A office market continued to receive limited new supply in the second half of 2014. Only one new project was handed over adding an office GFA of 56,000 sq m to the market. As a result, Beijing’s Grade A leasable office stock grew to around 9.4 million sq m, remaining the largest market in mainland China. After a slowdown over the past year, demand began to pick up in 1H/2014 as the stabilised local economy created growing demand from domestic companies, particularly private companies. This was evidenced by net take-up rising significantly to 141,000 sq m in 1H/2014, nearly 2.5 times that of 2013.

Guangzhou Hospitality 2H 2014

Guangzhou Hospitality 2H 2014

November 18, 2014

Since 2012, thanks to the entrance of several renowned luxury hotel brands, Guangzhou’s hospitality sector has experienced a period of remarkable development. The Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental and W Hotel launched their Guangzhou locations within that time, all in Tianhe district. Prior to this, there was only one hotel which could be categorised as a luxury five-star hotel – The Ritz-Carlton Guangzhou, established in 2008. The entrance of the Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental has undoubtedly undermined the Ritz-Carlton’s edge in Guangzhou’s luxury hospitality sector. Additionally, Guangzhou’s W Hotel was the first W Hotel in mainland China as well as the first boutique hotel in Guangzhou, bringing consumers an alternative hospitality experience. In addition to the aforementioned hotels, Grandview Marriott in Tianhe, DoubleTree by Hilton in Yuexiu and Langham Place in Pazhou were also launched between 2012 and 1H/2014.

Japan Hospitality 2H 2014

Japan Hospitality 2H 2014

November 18, 2014

According to the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO), the number of international tourists visiting Japan in 2013 totalled a record 10.36 million, up by 24.0% from 8.36 million in 2012. Between January and March this year, the number of overseas arrivals reached an estimated 2.87 million – equivalent to approximately 28% of 2013’s total or 11.5 million on an annualised basis. This growth has been driven principally by Japan’s rising popularity among Asian tourists. In order to promote inbound tourism, the government initiated the Visit Japan campaign in 2003, adopting an initial target of attracting more than 10 million overseas visitors to the country by 2010. Although this target was achieved three years later than expected, pushed back firstly by the global financial crisis (GFC) in 2009 and then by the disasters in northeast Japan in 2011, the total number of arrivals almost doubled between 2003 and 2013.

Malaysia’s economic growth continued in the first and second quarters of 2014, with the gross domestic product (GDP) increasing faster than expected. Malaysia’s economy grew 6.2% in the first quarter of 2014 and 6.4% in the second quarter, when many economists had expected growth of between 5.7% and 5.8% in both quarters. The fast pace of economic growth is due to the rise of exports and private domestic demand. Private investment continued to register double digit growth, and increased by 12.1% in the second quarter (14.1% in Q1/2014). Private consumption increased by 6.5% for the same period (7.1% in Q1/2014), while public sector expenditure declined by 2.1% (2.7% in Q1/2014).
