Seminar China’s 13th Five-Year-Plan & Compliance for International Companies

SAVE THE DATE: 11. December 2015


Language: English

Time: 8:15 – 10:30 Uhr




The following SME Seminar will focus on China’s Economic and Financial Situation. Details on China’s 13th Five-Year Plan were revealed recently, setting “maintaining medium-high growth,” highlighting the ideas of innovation, coordination, green development, opening up and sharing to fulfil its goals. On the one hand side, China wants to open itself more to the world economy, while on the other hand side the government is tightening the strings of regulations and requirements foreign invested companies in China have to follow.

This can also be seen at the annual audit, which is widely seen as a burden by the entrepreneurship, a jungel of rules, deadlines and requirements on the annual audit that is causing headache for most CFOs.
