Mayer Brown JSM Legal Update

On 19 January 2015, the Ministry of Commerce of China ("MOFCOM") released a draft version of the Foreign Investment Law (中华人民共和国外国投资法(草案征求意见稿)) ("Draft Foreign Investment Law") for public comments. The deadline to submit comments is 17 February 2015.

The Draft Foreign Investment Law will replace the three existing foreign investment laws – Sino-Foreign Equity Joint Venture Law ("EJV Law"), Sino-Foreign Cooperative Joint Venture Law ("CJV Law") and Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprises Law ("WFOE Law"). It will significantly change the existing regime of foreign investment and become the basic law regulating all foreign investment activities in China.
