In February 2009, the Chinese government decided to abolish the "Provisional Measures Governing Chinese-Foreign Joint Equity or Cooperative Radio and TV Program Production Enterprises".
The above measure prohibited foreign companies from establishing wholly owned radio/TV program production and management companies. It should however be mentioned that the "Listing of Industrial Indicators for Foreign Trade Investment (2007)" contains a similar provision and is still in force.
