Topic: One Belt and One Road Initiative: Challenges and International Legal Aspects
Abstract: The interest of different countries in cooperation with China is growing. It is so, especially due to the One Belt and One Road Initiative (the New Silk Road) that has been launched in 2013. It is a multilateral and large-scale infrastructure project to connect Asia and Europe by road, rail and sea (the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road).
China has already signed cooperation agreements with many countries and international organizations. A breakthrough was made in developing multilateral economic corridors. Steady progress is being made in synergizing the initiative with the Eurasian Economic Union.
This speech shall be focused on the scope of the One Belt and One Road Initiative as well as the challenges it faces from an international legal perspective.

Topic: Information Contents of Appraisal-based Index of Commercial Real Estate
Abstract: The commercial real estate market provides a unique environment to evaluate the information content of appraisal-based index of commercial real estate and the movement of transaction price to value. The assumption that asset prices, especially financial assets including stocks and bonds, reflect intrinsic value is the cornerstone of modern financial theory. Given the latent nature of intrinsic value, however, definitive empirical assessment has been difficult. The commercial real estate market’s long-term use of both judgment (appraisal) based returns and transaction returns provides a test of the role of intrinsic value. Statistically significant results from cointegrating models suggest that transaction based returns deviate from judgment based returns in the short run, but converge back to the equilibrium state. Additional tests show that the cointegrating residuals among transaction, appraisal and REIT returns predict the one-quarter-ahead transaction returns. The transaction or price returns are predictable with convergence to intrinsic value. The market moves to intrinsic value.
