Bleak Future For Malls?

Since starting up shop over two decades ago, Golden Eagle Retail International Group's retail assets has expanded to 31 stores in China spanning across 19 cities today.

The business has certainly grown over time but in recent years, its earnings have been hit. Net profit halved to RMB400 million in FY2016 and it is much lower than the group's profits in 2012 of RMB1.2 billion.

Can mall earnings ever get ever go back to their heydays prior to the digital disruption?

Group’s founder and chairman of Roger Wang shares his views on this.

Having been in the retail mall industry for three decades, he also talks us through the evolution of global retail shopping from the 80s up to today.

In the midst of a tougher operating landscape, Roger shares insights about Golden Eagle's strategies go ride out the current turbulence faced by mall operators.

He also talks about what the group is doing to stay relevant in a fast changing environment.

A major global retail trend is the big shift to e-commerce. Is this current shopping trend shift cyclical or structural in nature? What will shopping be like 10 years from now?

Tune in to listen to Roger's take on this.
