Co-organized by CKGSB and KPMG, this breakfast meeting will shed light on the details and implications of the Shanghai Free Trade Zone. The meeting will feature insights by experts in finance, accounting and tax affairs, who have experience, relevant connections and a deep understanding of this key area.
Since its official launch on September 29, 2013, China’s Shanghai Free Trade Zone has garnered much anticipation and attention. Its significance could be comparable to that of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone established more than 30 years ago in that it could serve as China’s testing ground for groundbreaking economic reforms. These reforms include the liberalization of several investment sectors that are currently restricting foreign investment, structural changes in the financial sector and foreign exchange administration, and the further development of trade in goods within the Shanghai Free Trade Zone. What is important is that expectations are focused on more than just free trade, but a free market in which the government will loosen its reins over China’s economic engine and create a level playing field for all market participants.
