Social Insurance Law for Foreigners - One Year Later with BenCham Beijing
Beijing, China | October 11, 2012
Last year China decided on a new Social Insurance Law for Foreigners, and Beijing was the first city to implement it. BenCham Beijing has already discussed the new social insurance law for foreigners just before its implementation, but now one year has passed, and it’s time to see where we actually stand.
- What has actually changed for expatriates and employers?
- What are the differences between the different regions?

To answer these questions and more for you, we are proud to announce that our speakers of the day will be Chet Scheltema form Dezan Shira and Kristie Tien from HIL Lawyers.
