The Corporate Social Credit System is still under construction and needs to be adjusted, expanded and improved continuously. Therefore, the corporate should pay continuous attention to and accurately grasp the future development of the social credit system, closely observe the changes of the administrative department’s credit rating system and rating requirements, and carry out internal monitoring on the daily operation of the corporate to ensure that the corporate's behavior meets the credit rating requirements.

“Operation Skynet” is an important operation deployed by the Central Anti-Corruption Coordination Group targeting fugitive corrupt elements. Through coordinating various efforts of the police, prosecution, diplomacy, finance, etc., the operation combines time and effort to “arrest a number of corrupt criminals, clean up a number of illegal certificates and licenses, cracked down on a number of underground banks, and recovered a number of assets involved”. In March 2015, the operation was officially approved and launched through by the Fugitive Repatriation and Asset Recovery Office of the Central Anti-Corruption Coordination Group.

The purpose of establishing the system of “whistleblowers” is to strength the monitoring by the public opinions and hold back those who may go against law.  As such, the system shall provide heavy bounty and strict protections to the whistleblowers in relation to serious violations of laws and regulations and significant risks and loopholes.  The whistleblower system called for in the guidelines is not out of the blue and heavy bounty to whistleblowers is not unprecedented.  Certainly, there are Chinese companies falling down on the tips of whistleblowers. However, non-Chinese companies are seemingly more vulnerable to whistleblowing.

On April 30, 2019, the U.S. Department of Justice issued an updated version of its Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs. The guidance document sets forth a list of common questions that prosecutors may ask in evaluating corporate programs in a criminal investigation. Compared with the 2017 version, the 2019 updated one is more pragmatic and practical. Although the document does not explicitly indicate “right” answers to such questions, the questions clearly reveal the components of an effective compliance program to enterprises.  We translated the document into Chinese for reference.

Based on the successful cooperation between Baidu and GAC at the high-precision map level, the cooperation between them in Level-3 autonomous driving and other products will also be carried out gradually.  We look forward to the GAC vehicle model’s early realization of the leap from the scientific research results to the mass production.  In the future, more and more autonomous driving solutions with "Apollo gene" will become the standard configuration for traditional automobile companies’ AI upgrades, which will also bring about another revolution to the human travel.

Its sub-forum — 5G: The achiever of Internet of Things — talks about the 5G development.  The participants of this forum believed 5G development should be open, cooperative, globally unified and integrated with existing industrial facilities.

Miao Wei, the Minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (“MIIT”), said at BFA that the MIIT and Ministry of Transport (“MOT”) had reached a consensus that the government would devote itself to promoting the research on vehicle networking, and speeding up the intelligent and digital revolution on the highways in China.

China passed the Foreign Investment Law ("FIL").  Among many excitements to Chinese and non-Chinese investors, there is a great news or heart balm that the FIL did not illegalize the “variable interest entity” structure or VIEs as the Foreign Investment Law (draft) suggested.  VIEs have been the investment structure of choice for foreign investors to navigate through the grey areas of PRC law on foreign direct investment for over two decades.   It remains to see that many VIEs will be continuously structured to turn around the areas not available for non-Chinese investors, and if the Chinese government will illegalize them in China.  The article is not legal opinion and for registered members only.
