Peter Verwer：We are very positive about the potential for REITs in China to be a world-class market. That's very attractive to institutional investors globally, but also work well for China，so more moms and dads and families can use REITs to build personal wealth. But it's also good for the government in helping its urbanisation, strategy and achieve national goals. The main difference between REITs in China and other countries is that , the other country is part of the economic framework, is their clear ..., their clear tactuals. In China there are stages of developments, so there are lots of quasi REITs, experimental re-products, which is very promising. But we are only age now in the class of seeing a curd which local in global market on the stand and which investors can assess whether assets would work in a reit framework or might be best in other platforms.
Peter Verwer：It's massive potential for a multi family, asset class built to rent asset class in China. America has done it very very successfully, Britain is looking at having a bill to rent market, so is Australia and Canada. The reason for that is industry wants to have housing for sell, but if housing can be professionally managed intending to asset class, then it leaves more supply, it leaves more choice and it leaves grateful affordability for citizens. A more we've seen the country is this re-platform, is also a very fishion wave finding a financing housing and managing them in managing houses departments in a professional way. A good thing is it doesn't just need to be a multi family with lots of people in apartments, but it can also work for standard line housing as well.
Peter Verwer：Emerging Asia real estate is the fast as going properly market on the planet. That's China. And India? But China is certainly the biggest engine, indeed a merging engine real estate will overtake Europe in the next 4 years, and in United States within 5 or 6 years, and that's because the tremendous increase in the middle class and urbanisation. And that's why a reit framework which is more focused on equity is great platform. Now there are fantastic examples around Asia, and in Singapore, the new rules in India, the upgraded rules in Malaysia, the improved rules in Australia, which should, if it state of the uprate platform is implemented. As we saying other Asian countries of taking this model which is fatally a capital market's ape and I said, we want the most recent version of this apical is good for citizens, as good for families as good for economic growth. And the keys to ensure that there is right for texturing and we've looked at the assets, the existing China but our in Singapore funds and Hong Kong funds. So assets in China that are already REITs in Singapore and Hong Kong and looked how they perform. And performance in the last year is about 15% total return. That is better than Australia, that is better than Taiwan, that is better than Malaysia and that's better than Japan. It comes second only to Hong Kong which is about 16% total return and Singapore which last year was 20% total return. So this is no guarantee or prediction of the future, but it indicates that Chinese mainland assets which are already in funds in Hong Kong and Singapore are very very strong performance. And for those who are interested in the distribution yield is 6.2%, so it's a very healthy, very attractive level of investment of performance return. The question is why is that case when yields are often much lowrange in China. And the answer is simple. Because it's in the rate, because it's transparent, because it's smart taxation. It's good capital management, the assets of high quality and the way the REITs are managed is the world-class level. And if the model can be replicated across China with good legislation, then in China there will be a very strong globally attractive market place.
