Any overseas business or individual considering investing in one or more of mainland China’s 11 Free Trade Zones (FTZs), including those currently operating in Shanghai, Guangdong, Tianjin and Fujian, should initially familiarise themselves with the Special Management Measures (Negative List) for Foreign Investment Access in Pilot FTZs.

Apart from those sectors designated as falling within the remit of this Negative List, any overseas investor looking to fund a business operating within an FTZ will enjoy the same privileges and entitlements as a mainland-based investor. The Measures, however, also make it clear that if more generally favorable terms for Hong Kong-based investors are specified under the provisions of the Mainland-Hong Kong Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA) or its supplements, then these provisions shall be deemed to prevail in all instances of FTZ-related Hong Kong investment.

For further details regarding the FTZ Negative List, please refer to the following link:
