The Future of Business in China – Open Door Policy vs. Great Firewall
April 10, 2019 | 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm
| GCC Office Tianjin
China has pledged to keep its doors wide open to the world, yet the trade war keeps escalating. The government is cutting red tape for foreign businesses, but it’s also making the “Great Firewall” ever more impenetrable. Amid these mixed signals, should foreign businesses be optimistic or cautious about China?
Compliance in accounting, tax and HR belongs to one of the key issues in today’s China business. Furthermore, in the recent years new environmental regulations, which are strictly enforced by officials, are putting the focus on an additional area of compliance in China and often hit international companies unprepared. We will answer which measures should be taken to adapt appropriately to today’s compliance environment in China.
Join us for our interchamber seminar with EU Chamber of Commerce, Tianjin on April 10th. for thought-provoking, practice-oriented discussions that will help you identify “open doors” in the Chinese market, as well as tackle new risks & roadblocks, to ensure growth in uncertain times.
