Speakers discussing the impact of the new Foreign Investment Law

Giovanni said: “The new Foreign Investment Law is going to be in effective on January 1, 2020, and all the foreign investors must take this into consideration when they start to plan how to reshape their company structure in China in order to comply with the new regulations. Together with BRI, the new Law on Foreign Investment is an important tool to further push the opening up process of China and to make easier doing business in China.”

Giovanni went on to describe the major changes introduced by the new law on Foreign Investment and the best strategies to support Italian investors in this important transition.
