Doing business with China - inbound and outbound investment
Author(s): Ian MCCUBBIN China's legal and regulatory systems affect everyone engaged in business and trade activities in China, regardless of their industry sector. The rapid transition to a free market economy has produced a tidal wave of new laws, but insufficient infrastructure to support them. The result is a complex, multi layered and opaque system with little or no independent review of administrative decisions. Against this background, Australian companies need to adopt new strategies not only to deal with bureaucracies, but also for effective structuring of commercial operations. This presentation discusses these issues.
