Prin Shasiharan, Commercial Editor of ITR
ITR and KPMG will host a live webinar on Tuesday, July 21 to discuss the business implications of China's development of the Hainan free trade port.
On June 1 2020, the Chinese government released a master plan for policies to support the development of the Hainan free trade port. The aim is to build Hainan Island, on China’s south coast, into a globally-significant free trade port by 2050 that marks a new stage in China’s opening-up.
Policies will be rolled out to facilitate trade, liberalise investment, allow capital to flow freely cross-border, make transit more convenient for people, and ensure the safe flow of data. Improvements to the tax and legal systems will be made to support the development of the free trade port.
In this webinar, Han ShengJian, Director General of Hainan International Economic Development Bureau, and Nicole Zhang, partner-in-charge of Hainan initiatives in KPMG China, will share their insights on the plan for Hainan free trade port and explore how businesses can best seize the new opportunities that will emerge from the development.
The 60-minute webinar will be moderated by ITR’s Commercial Editor Prin Shasiharan. The webinar will be followed by a Q&A session.
