For all those with investment interests in China, on March 15, 2019, China’s National People’s Congress (NPC) passed the Foreign Investment Law (FIL) of the People’s Republic of China. The FIL will take effect from 1 January 2020.

This new law showcases the government’s willingness to deepen reform and open up its economy. It is a modernisation of its old laws to reflect the changing global economy and addresses concerns voiced by international companies operating in China.

The new Foreign Investment Law contains 42 articles under the following six chapters:

  • general provisions
  • investment promotion
  • investment protection
  • investment management
  • legal liability
  • supplementary provisions. 

Dickson Leung, Partner at MGI Worldwide accountancy network member firm LehmanBrown in China said, “The new laws aim to create a level playing field between domestic and multinational companies."

Lehman Brown has prepared a paper entitled "Release of new foreign investment law and its impact."
