Seminar: Compliance: a New Challenge for Foreign Businesses in China– Thursday 20 September 2018 at 12h00 – Holiday Inn Gent Expo, Ghent

Dear Sir, Dear Madam,


The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce has the pleasure to invite you to our seminar:


Compliance: a New Challenge for Foreign Businesses in China.

Thursday 20 September at 12h00 at Holiday Inn Gent Expo, Maaltekouter 3, 9051 Gent.


Keynote speaker:

Mr. Philippe Snel, founder and managing partner of De Wolf Law, started his China practice in 2001. He has been a member of the Brussels Bar since 1997. Philippe helps foreign investors establish, develop and operate their businesses in China. He mainly advises in the fields of corporate law, compliance and technology transfer.


Most foreign managers in China will tell you that the most important challenges they face today are linked to the increased regulation of their daily operations. This is because Chinese authorities have been clamping down on all sorts of administrative irregularities and code violations.


Factories are being shut for breaching environmental regulations, companies are being fined for failing to fulfill obligations for the overtime work of their employees, foreign employees are denied working permits for failing to meet required conditions, companies are faced with audits from local tax bureaus , commercial practices are being investigated for alleged breach of anti-bribery regulation, etc...  


In many ways, these changes are good for Western companies, but these changes come with challenges. Philippe Snel will be addressing these issues and more.


In particular, he will focus on providing answers to questions frequently faced by the managers in the headquarters about how they should approach such situations when they occur in their China subsidiaries.
