Chinese investors inquiring about property investment in Singapore have hit record highs since the second quarter of 2019, reported CNBC (24 November 2019). China's most widely used internet marketplace for foreign property purchases thinks that the trend will maintain until at least the first half of 2020. "Singapore is the regional safe harbour and the current unsettled political and economic environment makes safety seem worth paying a premium for," said Georg Chmiel, executive chairman of, China's largest online international property marketplace.
