Draft Foreign-Invested Partnership Regulations - A Move to A National Framework for FIPs


Approval of the Draft Foreign-Invested Partnership ("FIP") Regulations

On August 19, 2009, China’s State Council approved, subject to further clarifying amendments, the Administrative Measures for the Establishment of Partnership Enterprises in China by Foreign Enterprises or Individuals (Draft) (the “Draft FIP Regulations”). The Drafted FIP Regulations have been returned to the Ministry of Commerce for further refinement.
