The constant changes in the trade and business environment have brought a series of new issues and challenges to the multinational companies. The integration of special customs supervision areas, the establishment of the Hainan Free Trade Port and the new business normal in the post-COVID-19 epidemic era are bringing great impact on the value chain arrangements of multinational companies. How to address these issues in the value chain and supply chain more effectively is very important for multinational companies.

Meanwhile, with the implementation of customs centralized industry monitoring and management practice, how to balance the compliance requirements from both transfer pricing and customs perspectives is also one of the areas worth exploring.

We are delighted to invite you to join our talk where our professionals from world trade management and Transfer Pricing Services team will share with you our insights from customs, transfer pricing and person income tax's perspectives.

The event is co-hosted with BenCham and SwissCham.
