If there is a high complex project with very wide visibility and tight timelines I just recommend Jacques. Thanks!”

China’s Free Trade Zones (FTZ)

What is a Free Trade Zone?

FTZs had three targeted functions: export processing, foreign trade, and logistics and bonded warehousing. The first state-level FTZ, Shanghai Waigaoqiao FTZ, was set up in 1990. These FTZs may be viewed as enclaves within China. Although they are physically inside China’s border, they function outside China’s customs regulations. Companies in FTZs are eligible for tax refunds on exports, import duty exemption, and concessionary value- added tax. Currently, there are 15 FTZs in 13 coastal cities. Source: World bank FTZ study.

What’s the difference with Shanghai Pilot Free Trade Zone (SPFTZ)?

The Zone introduces a number of reforms designed to create a preferential environment for foreign investment. In September 2013 the State Council of China published a list of 18 service industries to receive more relaxed policies in the zone, including medical services, value-added telecommunications, ocean freight & international ship management and particularly banking. The Zone cancels out a number of financial requirements for setting up a company in China, including the minimum registration capital. Moreover, under the FTZ's new capital registration system, foreign investors are no longer required to contribute 15-percent capital within three months and full capital within two years of the establishment of a foreign invested enterprise. In addition to these financial reforms, the SPFTZ also introduces a simplified procedure for foreign investors to establish a company in China. The “one-stop application processing platform” unique to the Zone.
