Over the past two decades, foreign investment in the Australian property market has been one of the major contributors to the growth in property values. Both supported and curtailed by various governments at different times, the impact of foreign investment on the Australian property market is complex and multi-faceted. What role will it play in a post-COVID world?

This is the second of three webinars, in partnership with ULI Australia, that will examine the role of foreign investment in the Australian real estate market. Join our panel as they discuss with Peter Holland (Director, International Property Economics - Urbis) the future influence of foreign investment on the Australian commercial property market.
