According to Cushman & Wakefield's annual China Outbound Investor Intentions Survey, Chinese outbound investment into Australian commercial property has seen a 60 percent drop over the past year, falling from almost $7 billion to $2.83. 

The pullback is the result of regulatory changes and tighter lending conditions.

Property experts expect Australia’s office and retail sectors to remain attractive to investors, but predict sales will come from different regions and at reduced levels.

An increase in joint venture deals is also expected.

Although mainland Chinese investment has decreased, Cushman & Wakefield’s annual China Outbound Investor Intentions Survey revealed investment from Hong Kong has increased by 20 per cent, with further increases expected in 2018.

Cushman & Wakefield’s head of capital markets Australia and New Zealand, James Quigley, told the Sydney Morning Herald that although Chinese investors say they still favour the Australian market, regulatory changes and fierce competition for high quality assets is expected to weaken deal activity.
