Arthur Lang had a long speech talking about the business and thre main focus but the main thing that he mentioned in his talk is this

I think for Singapore and China alone today, it’s about 75-80 percent of total assets for the group. If you look at all the projects and activities we’re involved in these two countries, I think in the next five years I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s about 85 percent of our total assets and total business. Specifically if you look at China, it’s perhaps the best place to do business in Asia, with 1.3-1.4bn people; it’s a huge market. I think more importantly as well, urbanization rates in China are still relatively low compared to the developed world, it’s still in the 50 percent area.”
