Kapronasia Webinar: October 23rd - The Shanghai Free Trade Zone

Join us for a Webinar October 23rd

Few initiatives in the past couple of years have captured the attention of China’s financial services community more than the recently opened Shanghai Free Trade Zone. Situated in the eastern part of Shanghai and encompassing 29km2 of land which, like the rest of Pudong, was predominantly farmland as little as ten years ago.

Depending on whom you speak with, the Shanghai Free Trade Zone will either be a bastion of financial industry reform and opening, unseen since the great opening of the late 1970s where unbridled capitalism reigns free and unhindered, or it will be a mini-HZ, where bankers are saved the long-distance phone charges to HK, but not much else.

Either way, following the developments of the Shanghai Free Trade Zone is critical for any company in, or closely tied to China’s financial services industry to pay attention to. Citibank and DBS have already made big bets, and others might soon too.

To help companies understand the zone and its potential implications, Kapronasia’s next webinar will take a look at what the Shanghai Free Trade Zone actually is and examine potential scenarios of what it could be in the future. Over the course of this 30 minute webinar we will look at:

  • An overview of the Shanghai Free Trade Zone
  • Current regulations and guidelines of the Free Trade Zone
  • Comparison of the Shanghai Free Trade Zone to other China special economic development zones
  • Future potential Scenarios of the Shanghai Free Trade Zone Title: The Shanghai Free Trade Zone and its impact on China's Financial Services Industry
