On July 10, the Shanghai government rolled out a new action plan to further open Shanghai's economy and improve the business environment. Named the "100 measures", the plan was introduced by Shanghai Party Secretary Li Qiang and is Shanghai's response to President Xi's recent calls for economic opening and globalization. The plan has five objectives:
- Boosting Shanghai's position as an international financial center.
- Building a more open services sector and advanced manufacturing industry.
- Establishing high-standards IPR protection.
- Creating an import platform with international influence.
- Providing a first class legal, international and convenient business climate.
The "100 measures" will continue to be a major theme for the Shanghai government in the coming months. To help members gain a better understanding of the measures and their potential impact on the business community, AmCham Shanghai has invited Lu Aiguo, Director of Foreign Investment at SDRC to provide a briefing on the new measures. Director Lu has been leading the efforts in creating the action plan and is coordinating with various government bodies on the plan's implementation.
