FREE TRADE & SPECIAL ECONOMIC ZONE SUMMIT

13-14 September, 2017 Shanghai, China

In 2014, China celebrated two major milestones relating to its economic growth and globalization strategy as it became the world’s largest economy, and the 2nd largest FDI source, trailing only the USA.On 30 November, the IMF decided to include the yuan in the Special Drawing Rights (SDR) basket starting from 1 October 2016.

These milestones, coupled with the successful launch of the Shanghai Free Zone in 2013, and subsequent state approval of 3 additional free trade zones in Tianjin, Guangdong and Fujian,is promising to solidify China’s presence even further as a global economic force in both investment and trade. As such, the opportunity to capitalize on China’s outbound investment and unprecedented relaxation of capital controls is paramount, actualized in December 2015 with the Free Trade and Special Economic Zone Summit, hosted in Shanghai by Invest In in collaboration with the China government and the Shanghai Free Trade Zone.
