The sector became an important contributor to the economy, and property prices began to rise significantly, particularly in major cities such as Beijing and Shanghai.2008-2018: The real estate industry experienced a slowdown in growth during this period, as the government implemented measures to curb rising property prices and reduce the risk of a real estate bubble. Despite this, the industry continued to expand, and demand for housing and commercial property remained strong.2018-present: The real estate industry has continued to grow in recent years, although growth has slowed somewhat due to government measures to curb rising property prices and reduce the risk of a real estate bubble. The sector remains an important contributor to the economy, and demand for housing and commercial property remains strong, particularly in major cities.
