Business in China

Chinese economy is characterized by the rapid growth of outbound investment over the last few years. China joined the WTO on 11 December 2001 and since then, China has become a more integrated member of the world’s trading system. Foreign investors have also benefitted from the opening of many sectors to foreign investment and China’s commitment to reform its legal system relating to trade in goods and services, intellectual property and foreign exchange control.

The Closer Economic Partnership Arrangements (CEPA) with Hong Kong and Macau give Hong Kong and Macau businesses greater access to China’s markets. Goods of Hong Kong or Macau origin can benefit from reduced tariffs in China. Hong Kong and Macau businesses have also been given greater access to various service sectors.

While the main text of CEPA was signed in 2003, annual supplements from 2004 to 2011 have progressively opened up investment opportunities for Hong Kong and Macau investors.
