International trade in 2017 has gradually recovered while global economic recovery has improved. The World Trade Outlook Indicator of 2017 reached to 102.6 in the third quarter, marking the highest index since April 2011. China’s 19th National Congress has also injected new impetus to economic development, the economics structural reform has been contributing a steady development to the domestic economy.

Looking forward to 2018, there are still external risks and uncertainties such as trade protectionism, etc. The key for all MNCs is to know how to accurately grasp and conform to the trend of global economic development and minimise the uncertainty in business.

In 2017, China’s intensive reforms in customs operation and the implementation of integrated customs clearance programme have been running well. With the establishment of the risk management centres and duty collection and supervision centres in China, the customs reform has entered a new era. The focus in 2018 will be on observing its transformation.

In this workshop, our subject matter experts will share with you an update of the reform and measures that have been implemented, as well as an outlook of the key changes, risks and opportunities in customs and international trade for you to plan ahead for swift reaction to different situations. Highlights of the workshop include:

  1. Customs integrated clearance reform

  3. Authorised Economic Operators policy
  4. Development of e-commerce
