Complementing the first edition of ‘In the Zone’ – which gave an overview of the different types of zones commonly seen in China – this second edition takes a deeper dive into China’s Economic and Technological Development Zones (ETDZs): showcasing the many preferential policies they offer to foreign investors, as well as the key sectors they focus upon.

With a foreword from HM Trade Commissioner, John Edwards and contributions from in-market experts, the new ‘In the Zone’ report maps out the development of ETDZs and provides advice on both the practicalities of operating within these zones and best practice to achieve success.

As well as ETDZs, the new edition of ‘In the Zone’ also details the latest updates on Hainan Free Trade Port and the nine new Pilot Free Trade Zones announced in 2019 and 2020: projects that look set to play a significant role in China’s ongoing economic transformation. China’s zones continue to offer important benefits to UK businesses, therefore keeping on top of the latest zone-related policies remains one of the most effective ways to take full advantage of these benefits.
