18 March 2019
View Debevoise Update
On March 15, 2019, China passed the long-anticipated new Foreign Investment Law (the “FIL”), effective on January 1, 2020.
The FIL, which marks a milestone in China’s reform of its foreign investment regime, adopts a national treatment plus negative list approach to regulate foreign investment in China.
Although it remains to be seen how the FIL will be implemented in practice, the general trend over the past few years suggests that China is continuing its efforts to ease foreign investment restrictions.
