FDI: Entry and ownership rule
As of 1 October 2016, the Chinese authorities partially deregulated the establishment of "foreign-invested enterprises" (FIEs).
These include fully foreign-owned enterprises, as well as Sino-foreign joint ventures. Under the new regime, government approval to establish or amend a "deregulated foreign-invested enterprise" is not longer required. Rather than seeking upfront approval, the (partially-)foreign-owned enterprises have to notify the authorities within 30 days of the event.
The described liberalisation does not apply to activities listed on a "negative list". The content of this "negative list" has not been published to date.
