China’s Foreign NGO Law Update
Recorded on September 13, 2016

If your association is currently conducting activities inside Mainland China (or planning to), it’s critical to know what’s happening—and what’s at stake—with China’s updated Foreign NGO Law.

Passed in April, the new law limits the activities and operations of foreign organizations operating inside China. The clauses and objectives of the law are important in their own right. In addition, it’s critical to understand these complex rules within the broader context of China’s evolving political and legal climate.

Exactly how will these changes affect your current or future activities?  What activities are most likely to trigger compliance concerns? And what can you do now to adjust your strategies?
