KUMAMOTO EARTHQUAKE Relief

Kumamoto-1024x339

 

On April 14th, 2016, a magnitude-6.5 quake (M7.3) hit city of Kumamoto followed by a series of major earthquakes one after another causing deaths, injuries and widespread damage to the area’s residences and infrastructure. As aftershocks continue, tens of thousands of people have moved into evacuation centers which are doing their best to support the evacuees’ needs. The total damage, mainly to houses, from the strong earthquakes in and around Kumamoto Prefecture totaled 2.4 trillion yen to 4.6 trillion yen (about $22 billion to $42 billion) in Kumamoto with some 102,456 homes and buildings are listed as damaged or destroyed. AREAA Foundation in partnership with AREAA Global Japan Connect has put together a fund raising effort to help with the relief to rebuild homes in support for the people of Kumamoto. Please join us by donating today by sending your check to: AREAA Education Foundation 3990 Old Town Avenue, C304 San Diego, CA 92110 Attn: Kumamoto Relief Fund

Breaking Ground: Chinese Investment in U.S. Real Estate

CRE Launch Flyer SF[2]

 

It is one of the most profound consequences of China’s growing wealth: Chinese investment in U.S. real estate has exploded, particularly in New York and California. Chinese nationals are now the biggest foreign buyers of American homes, purchasing homes valued at $93 billion in the past five years, including $28.6 billion in 2015 alone. Commercial property purchases have surged as well, to $8.5 billion last year, a 15-fold increase from 2010. And, at nearly $208 billion, China is the biggest foreign holder of U.S.-government-backed real estate bonds.

These are among the findings of a major new report, presented by Asia Society and the Rosen Consulting Group, that provides an authoritative, comprehensive, and one-of-a-kind accounting of Chinese investment stocks and flows into the U.S. real estate market. Join us for a special program on the report and its implications; speakers will discuss the report and provide context for the broader debate, too often ideological and acrimonious, over U.S.-China trade and investment.
