We have the pleasure to invite you to a seminar focused on 'How China Is Improving Its Foreign Investment Climate'. This event will take place at 16h00 on Thursday May 28th 2015, at Ajuinlei 1, 9000 Gent.

The investment climate in China for foreign investors is undergoing profound and hopefully positive changes recently. In this presentation, Mr. REN Qing, partner of Zhonglun Law Firm, will share his insights about these changes and their implication for foreign investors and foreign invested enterprises, particularly covering:

(1) The draft Foreign Investment Law published in January 2015;
(2) The Catalogue of Industries for Guiding Foreign Investment revised in March 2015,
(3) The uniform Negative List applying to Shanghai, Guangdong, Tianjin and Fujian FTZs published in April 2015, and 
(4) The latest development of anti-trust enforcement in China, including the landmark Qualcomm case.

Mr. Ren Qing is a partner of Zhonglun Law Firm, specializing in M&A, anti-trust and trade law. Before joining Zhonglun, Mr. Ren was a deputy director at Department of Treaty & Law, Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) of China, and once worked at Embassy of China in Belgium from 2009 to 2011.

Mr. Ren was invited by MOFCOM to participate in the preparation of the Draft Foreign Investment Law as an external expert. He has written a series of articles in Chinese and English to interpret the draft law since the draft law was published this January. Mr. Ren's firm Zhonglun, recognized by Chambers Asia Pacific as PRC Law Firm of the year for 2014, also represented Qualcomm before the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) in the landmark anti-trust case which was closed this February.
