The New Foreign Investment Law – What Changes and How Will It Impact Companies

Join AustCham Shanghai for a discussion on the new changes to foreign investment law and what they mean for your company.
<p>The New Foreign Investment Law - 14 February</p>

Changes to China’s foreign investment law are eagerly awaited by the foreign business community and politicians around the globe. The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) started reviewing a new draft of the law in late January and it is expected that a finalized version will be ready in March. To cover these changes and to provide a first analysis of the amendments, our friends at SwissCham have invited Ralph Koppitz, Chief Representative and Partner at Taylor Wessing law firm for a discussion on these changes to Foreign Investment Law.
