Dear Madam, dear Sir,


The legal environment for foreign companies in China has been undergoing some important changes in recent years. Most of these evolutions are directly linked to the implementation of China’s economic reform plan and of the rule of law, which is being promoted as an essential element thereof.
The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce (FCCC) has the pleasure to invite you to a seminar where will be discussed how these reforms affect daily operations of foreign companies in China.
The seminar will be presented by Mr Philippe Snel, who has been practicing as a foreign lawyer based in Shanghai for the past 10 years, advising foreign companies about the intricacies of Chinese law. He will share some of his insights with regard to the reform and the practical consequences it has on foreign businesses in China.
His presentation will deal with such issues as: legal compliance and risk management, the growing importance of labor laws, the increased tax scrutiny on foreign companies, the implementation of strict regulatory frameworks for several industries (e.g. food, advertising), the influence of environmental protection laws and the promises of the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone.
The lunch-seminar will take place on Friday 23 October 2015 in the Zenith Building, Koning Albert II laan 37, 1030 Brussels.
Participation fee: €75 (excl. 21 % VAT) for members and €95 (excl. 21% VAT) for non-members.   

If you are interested in attending this seminar, please register online before 22 October 2015.   

We look forward to seeing you there.
