Guide to Doing Business in China

Mayer Brown Brochure

Since China opened its doors to foreign investors more than three decades ago, it has been a top recipient for international direct investments. Despite the gradual slowdown of the country's overall economic growth, foreign interest in China continues to be strong. The relatively steady increase has been accompanied by a structural shift in the projects financed and locations selected. The regulatory regime for foreign investment has also been evolving rapidly in recent years.

Our Guide to Doing Business in China aims to provide existing and potential investors with a snapshot of the key legislation that may have an impact on foreign investment in China, as well as major issues that foreign investors should be aware of when making an investment in China. Since the publication of the last edition of this Guide in 2013, a few major changes have taken place to the foreign investment legal regime. We are now pleased to announce the release of the latest edition of the Guide to continue to assist investors to navigate China's complex legal environment.
