Webinar for Chinese Investors: German Labor Law, Social Insurance, Income Tax, Visa Policy

August 15 / 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC+2

Webinar on German labor law


In its latest Country-risk Rating of Overseas Investment from China, the Chinese Academy of Sciences ranks Germany number one out of 57 analyzed countries. This means that Germany is the least risky country for Chinese foreign direct investments (FDIs). Germany not only leads in manufacturing and trade. The country is also a highly attractive destination for investments. Germany Trade & Invest identifies 10 reasons for Germany´s attractiveness in terms of FDI: vital economy, global player, high productivity rates, skilled workers, innovative spirit, excellent infrastructure, attractive subsidies, competitive tax rates, security and stability, high quality of life.

But there are also challenges to foreign investors: Germany has an intricate legal system and an utterly different mode of thinking and of doing business. On August 15, Ecovis Beijing and the SGET Group are another webinar. This time, we explain what Chinese companies and individuals as well as employers and employees need to know about German labor law, HR, social insurance, income tax and visa/residence policy.


  • Essentials about German labor law
