Advocacy Spotlight

APREA pursues an active advocacy program.

Our priority issues are to:

  • secure world class REIT regimes in AsiaPac countries where they don’t exist.
  • improve REIT frameworks to a ‘state of the art’ quality in countries that already host securitisation platforms.
  • improve cross-boarder investment rules.
  • rationalise real estate taxation arrangements
  • promote the rational adoption and adaptation of international capital markets and industry standards (where appropriate)
  • improve the ground rules for doing businesses
  • support the digitisation of official real estate ownership frameworks to improve market efficiency

APREA’s advocacy objectives are a more formalised AsiaPac marketplace that includes:

  • Capital market depth
  • Greater investment choice, diversity and versatility
  • The ability to toggle between public and private markets
  • Easier cross-border investment
  • More market players
  • More certain rules and lower taxes
  • The bottom line should be a larger and deeper real estate investment which should generate more investment opportunities.
