Revisiting the Shanghai Free Trade Zone: A Year of Reforms

In this issue of China Briefing, we revisit the Shanghai FTZ and its preferential environment for foreign investment almost a full year after its launch. In the first three articles, we highlight the many changes that have been introduced in the Zone’s first year of operations, including the 2014 Revised Negative List, as well as new measures relating to alternative dispute resolution, cash pooling, and logistics. Lastly, we include a case study of a foreign company successfully utilizing the Shanghai FTZ to access the Outbound Tourism Industry.
