What's On

Registration Closed

The first comprehensive law governing the e-commerce industry in Mainland China -- the PRC Electronic Commerce Law – recently came into force. Under the general principle of protecting consumers, it aims to balance the rights and interests of e-commerce platforms, business operators and the public to facilitate the development of e-commerce in the country.

Local government departments, e-commerce operators and industry organizations have been taking action to ensure that they are compliant with the PRC E-Commerce Law. Industry players in Hong Kong should also keep abreast of the latest developments in the sector to ensure their business compliance in Mainland China.

The Chamber is delighted to have Audrey Luo, Partner at Global Law Office Shenzhen, to discuss the practical issues and cross-border impact of the new law at a roundtable luncheon on 21 February.

The luncheon will cover:
• Regulatory updates in various districts since implementation of the law
• Practical issues in compliance with the PRC e-commerce law
• New regulations on cross-border e-commerce
