With over four decades of foreign-funded enterprises entering China, accompanied by China’s opening-up policy and active promotion of foreign investment, the legal framework applicable to foreign-funded enterprises has been continuously evolving. In order to provide a favorable and equitable business environment for foreign investment, the Foreign Investment Law came into effect in 2020, replacing the three old laws related to foreign investment and marking a new chapter where foreign-funded enterprises are equally subject to the Company Law. To meet the demands of economic development, the Company Law was revised at the end of last year and come into effect on July 1, 2024. This revision proposes numerous new requirements concerning registered capital system, rights and responsibilities of shareholders, directors, supervisors and senior executives which will undoubtedly bring both new opportunities and challenges for foreign-funded enterprises.

“Capital” and “Person” have always been the two cornerstones for development of enterprises. Through this presentation, we will summarize the legislative evolution in recent years affecting foreign-funded enterprises, focusing on the impact of the new regulatory framework under Company Law from the perspectives of “Capital” and “Person” which are critical to corporate governance and operations. We will discuss topics such as capital contributions of shareholders, capital increase and decrease, equity transfer procedures, appointment of legal representatives, corporate governance structures, shareholders’ rights and responsibilities, rights and responsibilities of directors, supervisors, and senior executives, as well as risks and safeguards related to their roles.
