Summary of the Talk 

The talk will present the factors contributing to the negative growth for the year 2016. The slow and declining growth of the property development is mainly affected by few main factors such as GST, weakening of Ringgit, plummeting price of commodity and the politicalizing of our country domestic affairs. The above factors have caused many developers to put on hold their new project launches. However, market is expected to recover by the end of year 2017 and the industry would bounce back when we draw closer to the end of the year with the condition of our Ringgit is strengthen and the external factors would subside.
