On December 6th, Maria Kotova, Head of UK and Ireland Business Development at Dezan Shira & Associates, will provide insight on the new draft of the Foreign Investment Law at the British Business Briefing Shanghai 2019 Q4.

The global economy is slowing down and the Chinese economy remains under pressure with GDP averaging around 6.2% in the first three quarters of this year. How will the global economy slowdown and the on-going trade disputes impact the Chinese economy?  How will the new Foreign Investment Laws affect UK businesses? Have the new Foreign Investment Law draft regulations helped alleviate investors’ previous concerns? What questions do the new draft regulations still fail to address? Join us at the British Business Briefing Shanghai where these questions will be answered within the context of the following topics:

  • What does the new Foreign Investment Law (FIL) mean?

  • How pre-establishment of the national treatment will affect Foreign Invested Enterprises (FIEs)?
