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.


Paul Van Hooghten, Partner and Head of the Corporate Practice at Linklaters, will briefly discuss the recent challenges faced by Chinese companies when doing acquisitions in Europe. 


Eric Liu, Senior Consultant of the Corporate/Mergers & Acquisitions Practice, based in Linklaters’ Beijing office, will give an update on the recent regulatory developments in Chinese investors’ outbound investment and the foreign investment regime in China.


Tom Vandebosch, Legal Counsel at Umicore, will join the panel discussion and will share the experiences of Umicore.


The seminar will be presented by Eric Liu, who has been advising clients on their inbound and outbound M&A transactions in relation to China and their operations in China for more than 13 years. 
His presentation will deal with the foreign exchange obstacles of Chinese investors when making outbound investments and the recent reform of the foreign investment laws in China.
The lunch-seminar will take place on Tuesday, 8 November 2016, between 12:00-14:00 in the offices of Linklaters13  rue Brederodestraat, 1000 Brussels.  A buffet lunch will be served at 12:00. The presentations and Q&A session will conclude at approximately 14:00.
