Li Keqiang, faced with accusations of “selective and subjective” scrutiny of foreign companies, insists that they will be treated no differently from their domestic counterparts. At the ‘Summer Davos’ in Tianjin in early September, the Premier insisted that China would “keep policies on foreign capital stable” and “standardise the business environment to attract more foreign businesses and investment.” 
 
The pilot Free Trade Zone in Shanghai, supported by similar ventures in Guangdong province at Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Zhuhai, was heralded as the advent of liberalisation. But one year in, how far has it helped foreign business? Is free trade a reality in 2014 - or even a prospect? Where exactly do the sticking points lie?
 
We are pleased to welcome Mr Song Qinghui, an independent economist and respected media commentator in China and abroad, to explain the structure, objectives, plus-points and problems of the pilot zones, and to offer a comparison of the projects in Shanghai and Guangdong.
 
Members and non-members are welcome. We are pleased to offer members a half-price discount. Please note that the presentation will be conducted in Mandarin and it is therefore recommended that only Mandarin-speakers attend.

全面解读上海/广东自贸区
 
自2013年以来,自贸区成为了中国的热门词汇之一。在十八届三中全会的主旨文件中,对上海自贸区作出了具体的描述,让中国自贸区议题成为当仁不让的全球焦点。彼时,上海自贸区的建设以及细则被认为是观察中国未来走向的最好窗口。一年之后,在日前于天津召开的夏季达沃斯论坛上,中国总理李克强在开幕式致辞和问答环节中,亦反复提到上海自贸区, 并表示要倡导开放公平的全球统一大市场,支持多边自贸安排和双边自贸区建设“两个轮子一起转”,努力形成“面向全球的高标准自贸区网络”,反对各种形式的保护主义,坚持实行更加积极主动的开放战略。
 
上海自贸区和深圳前海自贸区的形成代表了中国经济发展的一个趋势:在国际分工合作中,中国对外需要更加自由开放的窗口,并且更好地融入国际社会。那么在实际中,什么是自贸区?自贸区能在多大程度上惠及外商企业?2014年,在中国全面实现贸易自由会成为现实吗?自贸区发展的方向是什么?又会存在哪些问题? 
 
我们很荣幸的邀请到知名独立经济学家宋清辉先生, 为广大会员分析中国自贸区的结构、目标、亮点和问题;并以上海自贸区和深圳前海自贸区为案例,深度解读自贸区的政策和实操。
