Dear All, Welcome back! I hope everyone had a good summer either in Hong Kong or overseas. Let’s celebrate the beginning of the new season – going back to school for the children and back to the usual hectic schedules for us.
We met a few friends here in the last few days discussing how to start up in China. Coincidentally, we came across the promotion of the following event in the Dutch Chamber and found it very interesting. I have enclosed the details on the attached file for you.

Excerpt: Being one of the fastest growing economies in the world, China has become a powerful magnet for foreign enterprises who wish to invest inbound. To maximise profits, many of them would choose setting up in China. Yet, they may encounter lots of problems in implementation. This seminar would solve their concern. In the seminar, Alex Cho, the Managing Director of Intertrust Hong Kong, will discuss the trends and statistics of setting up a business in China. More importantly, he will highlight some various entity options for setting up in China, and also related issues such as taxation and legal requirements. Business cases will be provided as well to give practical advice to the audience.
