Advocacy Letter to Foreign Investment Department, Ministry of Commerce on Recent Issues

On 17th April, an advocacy letter was sent to Deputy Division Director Wu Di, Foreign Investment Department, Ministry of Commerce (Mofcom). Following topics were mentioned in the letter:

There are restrictive policies that have significantly impacted foreign business communities and their families in China in a negative manner. For example, the recent travel restrictions on resident foreigners—who are taxpayers and active members of various local communities in China—issued on 26th March, has made it impossible for many top management teams and experts, as well as their families, to return to their lives in China. This has led to delays and inefficiencies in many companies and has impacted investment decisions, while also putting resident families under considerable strain.

Another issue is the recent notice jointly issued by the MOFCOM, the NMPA and the General Administration of Customs (GACC), on the export qualification required by manufacturers of medical equipment. The new requirement blocks the ongoing export of medical equipment manufactured by our members, which is urgently needed outside China. There needs to be a more predictable and practicable way of ensuring the good standards of medical goods in China, to ensure the purchase of these goods by European companies that are actively facilitating the delivery of masks and other items to their respective home regions.

In addition, Chamber’s members in the automotive sector are facing difficulties with the upcoming deadline to comply with the national standard on emission GUO VI. A letter was sent to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) as well as the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) two weeks ago, and our members are looking forward to a response so that they can plan their businesses accordingly. Last but not least, Chamber’s members in the financial services sector are reaching out to the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission (CBIRC). They hope that it could quickly agree to a few targeted amendments, within the current regulatory framework, which would enable European banks to provide significantly more support to their corporate clients’ operations in China at a time when they need it the most.

As Mofcom's assigned contact person for European Chamber, Deputy Division Director Wu Di reached out to relevant departments immediately and reported the issues to Vice Minister Wang Shouwen. For further updates, Mr Wu will inform the Chamber in a timely manner.
