January Session: Highlights and Challenges of New Foreign Investment Law
Time: January 21st, 2020 9:30-11:30am
Venue: Titan Road No.22 Nuode Mansion Floor 29, Shahekou District, Dalian - Beijing Dentons Law Offices, LLP (Dalian)
Topic: Understanding new foreign investment law and its implementation regulations and judicial interpretation.
Since January 1, 2020, the foreign investment law has been taking into effect, and the original foreign enterprise law, Sino-foreign joint venture law and Sino-foreign cooperative operation law have been abolished. Accordingly, the regulations for the implementation of the foreign investment law and the new judicial interpretation of foreign investment promulgated by the Supreme People's court are also implemented.
As a foreign-funded enterprise which already established and in operation, the implementation of the new laws will bring a series of impact and changes. For example, the board of directors is no longer the highest decision-making body, the board of shareholders and the board of supervisors need to be set up according to the requirements of the company law, and the previous investment contract and articles of association need to be adjusted accordingly. In addition, the new law has made more detailed provisions in investment protection, information reporting, security review, etc.
We hope to help enterprises better transit and make changes under the law and regulations through the presentation and discussion in the forum meeting.
