After four quarters of sprinting through double and triple-digit growth, Chinese buyers took a breather in the third quarter of 2019, according to Juwai Executive Chairman Georg Chmiel, in a report by RETALK Asia (22 November 2019). The year-on-year growth rate in the number of buying enquiries made by Chinese buyers for Philippine property hit the relatively flat rate of growth of just 3.6 per cent. It follows an extended period of interest from Chinese buyers, dating back to the second quarter of last year.
