CIH in South East Asia


Roger Keller, Head of Education talks about his visit to Hong Kong

CIH has a long and close relationship with Hong Kong which, next year, will be 45 years old. Hong Kong has provided us, in the UK, with a useful entry card to China through the various networks our members have in SE Asia.

This is now bearing fruit with three universities and two technical colleges in Hong Kong, two universities in mainland China and a university in Taiwan recognised to provide undergraduate and postgraduate courses leading to CIH membership.

In addition to this, our Asia-Pacific Branch has just signed an agreement with CBRE, an American training company based in China, to provide CIH with a foothold in the Chinese training market and allow us to develop programmes for housing and property professionals.

My recent visit to Hong Kong, Taiwan and China (14 – 26 May) involved the accreditation of six educational programmes based in Hong Kong, Taipei, Wuhan and Guangzhou.

These programmes are nurturing a new generation of professionals in China and Taiwan who are taking property management to a new threshold of understanding, to include not only the maintenance of the buildings, but the wellbeing of the people who live and work in these communities.

With the pace of construction in China and Taiwan, the demand for these property professionals will quickly outstrip the supply and I would foresee many more universities across China delivering Property Management courses and seeking CIH recognition.
