ENFORCEMENT IN CHINA
Edmund Wan, Partner, Dispute Resolution, King & Wood Mallesons
With China’s economy developing rapidly over the last two decades, many foreign enterprises have invested in the country and are now doing business with Chinese partners. But because of the slowdown in the global economy, which has also affected the Chinese market, the number of commercial disputes between foreign investors and their Chinese business partners has increased.
In this session, we will cover:
11.30 - 12.30pm
CROSS-BORDER FUNDS FLOW
Minny Siu, Partner, Banking & Finance, King & Wood Mallesons
David Lam, Partner, Banking & Finance, King & Wood Mallesons
China’s regulators have recently announced changes which, broadly speaking, further ease the controls on financing between the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and offshore jurisdictions as well as the provision of security given in support of that financing. The changes are significant because they facilitate cross-border funding through the provision of loans offshore, and allow cash held in the PRC to be swept offshore. That funding will be used to fund cross-border trade, offshore investments and acquisitions and enable onshore treasury operations to be managed in global treasury pools. The changes further evidence the PRC’s determination to gradually ease capital account controls.
12.30pm - 1.00pm
