This book provides useful tools and information to help readers understand the key factors involved in organizing, structuring and managing a company in China. It achieves this by focusing on the critical issues that foreign investors and professionals encounter in China and using a clear and practical overview of Corporate Governance, Structure and Management of Foreign-Invested Enterprises under Chinese Law following the introduction of the 2015 Draft Foreign Investment Law. This latest reform project will likely have a major impact on the investment landscape, as it calls for the replacement and unification of the three Foreign Investment Laws currently in place, resulting in important changes in the legal framework governing foreign investments.The book examines company structures, together with their functions and relevant liabilities. Further, it addresses the respective positions held in a company in order to better understand the stakes each holds in Corporate Governance: the shareholders, legal representative, board of shareholders, board of directors, board of supervisors and the general manager. Unique aspects of the Chinese company system are also highlighted, such as company seals, shareholders' rights and potential company deadlock. As such, the book represents an essential overview of the current concerns regarding Corporate Governance in China, offering readers a broad perspective on the Chinese legal system and answers to the most frequent questions that arise.
