Due to the global adjustment of business strategy and the considerable impact brought on by COVID-19, a number of foreign investors no longer take China as their production base. Those having established labor-intensive industries in China are gradually adjusting existing businesses and are shifting to capital-intensive and technology-intensive industries. Consequently, many companies are looking for ways to optimize businesses and implement synergies. Implementing such restructuring and optimization efforts often raises complicated legal issues. In addition, over the past two years, Chinese legislative authorities issued the Foreign Investment Law of the People's Republic of China, the Regulation on the Implementation of the Foreign Investment Law of the People's Republic of China and several related regulations and notices. This marks the beginning of a new era for foreign investment in China. Foreign invested entities' restructuring or optimization plans require careful analysis in light of recent legislation and policy considerations. Moreover, overseas parents of foreign invested entities may want to raise funds backed by assets located in China, while it is very difficult, if not impossible, to get onshore security offshore loan (内保外贷) registered with SAFE.
