In China, an increasing number of foreign invested enterprises considers to relocate their business from first-tier cities which are generally subject to high operating expenses, strict regulations and fierce competition, to smaller cities (regions) with lower labor costs, higher financial incentives and less-saturated markets. Especially the rapidly increasing labor costs over the last years and the more and more strict environmental policies in many regions will accelerate this development in the future.
On September 27, the German Chamber of Commerce in North China cordially invites to this roundtable event in Dalian to discuss business relocation in China and asking the question, if the Northeastern Region of China (Dongbei) is the right choice for these companies to settle down. We have invited legal and manufacturing experts to share cases and experiences as well as providing guidance on current trends in relocation projects.
External guest speaker Mr. Philip Lazare, Partner & Lawyer at Luther Law Offices Shanghai will give insights and share practical experience about common reasons for relocation, key metrics to consider when determining a relocation strategy, laws and regulations in relation to relocation and labor issues involved in the relocation project. Mr. Jochen Geschke, Operation Manager at Shanghai CND Construction Co., Ltd. will present some practical cases and give advice on location analysis and site selection.As an additional feature, a special guest (CEO) from Shanghai (representing a German company) will also present his current relocation project, which will be discussed with the audience.
