China’s Cities Struggle to Complete Land Sale Plans
Multiple major cities in China will not be able to complete their annual land sale plans as cash-strapped property developers are still reluctant to bid despite of a raft of supportive government policies.
This year, 22 cities including Beijing, Shanghai and many provincial capitals planned to offer 31,814 acres of land for centralized auction, but only 55% of the property has been sold with a little more than a month left in the year. Chinese municipalities generate a significant share of their annual budgets from the sale of land-use rights.
