Three leading professionals on the Foreign Investment Law (FIL) will provide a practical overview of the impact of the FIL from multiple perspectives:
- How the FIL and related legislation provides new options and solutions for key legacy problems for foreign investors in respect of outdated old-style FDI documentation/corporate governance, limitations on FIE capital structures, and restrictions on FIE downstream investments.
- What the transition to the Company Law means for every FIE in concrete practical terms.
- How the FIL and related legislation levels the playing field for FIEs in China in terms of pre-entry national treatment, preferential policies, formulation of standards, government procurement, capital inflows and outflows, public financing, IP protection, etc.
