Foreign Investment Law

Due to high demand and fantastic feedback from our first event held on October 17th, our speaker Lucas Jonsson will host another event on the exact same topic. We look forward to meeting all of you who missed your chance last time!

It is now a matter of only months before the new Foreign Investment Law (FIL) is set to replace existing foreign direct investment laws. The ambition to simplify in-bound investment, level the playing field between foreign and domestic investment and increase flexibility in Chinese investments is generally welcomed. However, there is still significant uncertainty as to how this very short piece of legislation will replace current rules and integrate with existing procedures.

Join SwedCham and FBCS to discuss the highlights of the FIL, including:

  • How will the FIL impact existing joint ventures and other enterprises?
  • What steps should I take to prepare for its implementation?
  • What impact will the FIL have for new business ventures in China?
