[Chinese Language Session Only] Export Control Law (Second Draft)

On 3rd July, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPCSC) initiated the public consultation on the Export Control Law (Second Draft), which represents the beginning of a new regulatory regime in China. What is the difference between the first draft and the second one? What does it mean to European business in China? How could we navigate the current legislative and administrative framework?

On 1st June the long-expected Civil Code is published at the third session of the 13th National People's Congress. The new code is an amalgamation of existing civil laws and sprawls across seven chapters and 1,260 articles. It is the first time the People’s Republic of China has codified its legal system.

The Civil Code will take effect on 1 January 2021, and when it takes effect, it will abolish, among other laws, the General Provisions of the PRC Civil Law, the PRC Marriage Law, the PRC Guarantee Law, the PRC Contract Law, the PRC Property Law and the PRC Tort Liability Law.

The European Chamber is delighted to announce its series of upcoming working group meetings and events on the Civil Code. Starting off, we are pleased to invite Mr Feng Jing who will introduce our member changes regarding the Contract Law which may dramatically impact a company’s daily operation.

As the financial services market in China continue to open up to foreign firms, foreign banks, insurers, and asset & wealth managers, interesting opportunities begin to arise. There are a number of challenges along the entire life-cycle, from the outset of thinking through the optimal entry strategy, to designing the operating model, through to navigating the local regulatory regime, and eventually building and scaling up a profitable franchise in China.
The European Chamber is delighted to invite you to our next working group meeting where a panel of presenters will share their perspective on these topics.
