Event Details

The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce has the pleasure to invite you to a conference on 'China's New Company Law and its impact on Foreign Investors', which will take place on the 21st of May at 14h00 CEST at Ajuinlei 1, 9000 Gent.

An update on the regulatory environment and its impact on doing business in China!

Recent business confidence surveys of multinational companies in China, confirm that the rapidly evolving regulatory environment and the growing complexity of the compliance requirements are amongst the most impactful factors for business operations in China.

Philippe Snel, a prominent international lawyer in China, and member of our chamber, will provide an update on the most significant evolutions of the legal and regulatory framework for business in China.

He will discuss the consequences of the new company law on directors and managers responsibility, how to deal with the growing number of whistle-blower allegations and attacks by competitors, the reputational risks related to digital marketing campaigns and many more issues taken from his over 20 years' experience of practising law in China!

During the Q&A you can also ask other legal questions, such as, for example, setting up a joint venture, or a foreign owned company in China, licensing, etc.
