Doing business with or in China : new challenges in the next 12 months

China’s Foreign Direct Investment reached USD131 billion in 2017, the second-biggest amount of FDI in the world. The Chinese government is focused on the planned developments and defined strategies, as set out in the 5 year plans and the changes implemented by the latest National People’s Congress in March 2018, including the restructuring of various ministries. Besides the fight against corruption, science and technology, as well as economic and trade development, the Belt and Road Initiative, environmental protection, State-owned enterprise ownership reform are all on the agenda.

In particular, Cybersecurity has been a top priority concern of the Chinese government in recent years. The new PRC Cybersecurity Law – released in 2016 after rounds of legislative review – has taken effect on June 1st 2017. This new law was closely followed up by various new rules, all of which will have a substantial impact on foreign companies operating in China.
