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?

Register now for China’s Foreign NGO Law Update.

In this 90-minute webinar hosted live from Beijing, experts on operating inside China will explain how China has updated its Foreign NGO Law, and how associations and nonprofits can stay compliant. From a practical executive overview, to details on the implementation timeline, they’ll advise how to navigate these complex rules while reducing the chances of facing legal troubles or putting huge amounts of money at risk.

Know how to adjust your strategies in China. You’ll learn what types of activities may now raise concern. You’ll also gain valuable insights into how the legal and political climate in China shaped the changes to the Foreign NGO Law and how that same climate could continue to affect your activities.  Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
