On 13 September, our experts will give voice on their views about:

  • Should the government intervene more in the private property market to improve people’s livelihood and the city’s competitiveness?
  • Could increasing land supply solve current housing shortage in the face of an uncertain economic outlook?
  • Could curbing property price hikes help first time buyers buy affordable housing and get onto the housing ladder?
  • Rise in Hong Kong’s property prices vs the real income of the city’s workforce
