Letter from the Director — March’s End



Spring has sprung, allegedly, and as the weather warms up – again, allegedly – so goes the activity at the Chinese Chamber, rain or shine.

Earlier this week we held the first installment of a business luncheon series called Growing Your China Business, where Dezan Shira tax manager Sabrina Zhang flew from Beijing to give us the skinny on tax updates in China. She talked specifics on the changing tax laws coming from the central government that are meant to spur an economy based more on services than exports. Effectively, a deliberate and phased transition of tax reforms means a lower tax rate for many companies doing business in China. Sabrina left us her presentation document. If you would like to learn more, feel free to email me.
