The German Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Swiss Chamber of Commerce, is delighted to invite you to a joint seminar about M&A in China.
European companies are increasingly turning to M&A as a means to pursue their expansion plans in China. However, China's unique business, cultural and regulatory environment makes this a highly complex topic. How should companies approach M&A opportunities? What are the most important aspects that need to be considered when acquiring a company in China?
Our two speakers, Dr. K.-H. Lin, President of Asia-Pacific Management Consulting GmbH (APMC) and Ms. Liu Yaqi, Of Counsel at Wenfei Law, will share their view and experience on this complex subject with the audience.
Presentation 1: Do´s and Don't´s in M&A in China

Presentation 2: Legal Insights of M&A in China
- Chinese government approvals in common M&A cases
- special requirements when targeting a state-owned enterprise
- upcoming Foreign Investment Law and its impact
- application of anti-monopoly law in M&A cases
