China’s SAFE Releases Circular on Foreign-Invested Partnership EnterprisesWith the view to facilitate foreign investment and standardize the administration of foreign exchange for foreign-invested partnership enterprises, China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) released the “Circular on Issues Concerning the Administration of Foreign Exchange of Foreign-Invested Partnership Enterprises (huifa [2012] No. 58, hereinafter referred to as ‘Circular’)” on November 19, 2012.

The Circular clarifies and standardizes the relevant issues concerning the administration of foreign exchange for foreign-invested partnerships, including:

Streamline the administration process to facilitate the investment of foreign-invested partnership enterprises: The administration concerning the foreign exchange of foreign-invested partnership enterprises mainly involves registration.
