Chinese Laws and Regulations are complex and constantly changing, effective navigation first requires some history.

Gunboat diplomacy forced China, Japan and Korea to open to the outside world in the mid-19th century. The impacts of treaties signed, effectively forbidding local courts from trying foreigners (also called "extraterritoriality"), are still being felt today. These courts dispensed British and American justice in the Far East for over 100 years in China, with lasting impact.

Many economists see China’s recent changes in laws and regulations as overly biased and inward focused. Certainly they are complex and changing.

This lecture will focus on the key current legislation and regulation pertinent to Australian business (such as Cyber-security Law) with the background of why it may be so, as well as exploring practical ways of understanding the Chinese market environment with a short knowledge of recent Chinese history.
