Mergers & Acquisitions In China

Minimizing legal, regulatory and business risks when doing business in the world's largest market

Monday, December 10, 2007

About

While the benefits of investing in China can be great, so are the risks. Many US businesses that have ventured into China have been astounded by the variety of challenges they faced including investment restrictions, regulatory uncertainty and more. And, with the rising sense of protectionism in China, foreign companies must be smarter than ever about their investment decisions in the PRC. The newly enacted income tax laws as well as the labor laws and the rise of unionism will all undoubtedly have an effect on foreign investors.

For this publication from the 3rd National Symposium on Mergers and Acquisitions in China, the American Conference Institute has assembled an exceptional faculty of top business and legal minds who will provide you with an intensive, up-to-the-minute review of the most complex issues that arise in acquiring interest in China.
