China – the Middle Kingdom – is the most populous country in the world and the central junction point of Asia bordering 14 neighbor countries. China stands out with its diversity: rural regions contrast continuously growing metropolises; agricultural products compete with ultra-modern industry products. China’s economy is shaped by its dynamic and has developed rapidly during the past years, thanks to the reorientation from planned economy to market economy. At the same time, its globally connected market provides the best conditions for doing business in China.
Rödl & Partner looks back on a unique track record in the People’s Republic of China. Our first office opened in 1995, making Rödl & Partner among the very first European professional service firms to establish a presence in the People’s Republic of China. We are one of the very few professional services firms to have obtained a license to practice both as an accountants and lawyers. Our clients benefit from a seamless integration of inter-disciplinary services in connection with foreign direct investment.
Our many years of accounting and advisory services in our Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou offices, we’ve become familiar with the special demands and opportunities of investment in China. We can offer a wealth of experience combined with the high standards and expert knowledge of an international organisation.
Beijing, capital of the People’s Republic of China, is the politic, economic and social center of the country. Important industries are the chemical industry, engineering, the steel manufacturing as well as the automotive, and the construction industry thrives in particular.
Guangzhou is the capital of the southern province of Guangdong. It was one of the first cities in China to open up to foreign trade and investment. In this region, also known as the world’s factory, approximately one third of the Chinese export goods are manufactured. The province of Guangdong borders with Hong Kong. Over the past few years, especially the service sector has witnessed strong growth.
The port city of Shanghai is the junction for western investment in China and the national financial center. It is also one of the biggest cities in China. Since August 2015 the financial district Pudong has a new attraction – the Shanghai Tower which is more than 100 meters higher than the Shanghai World Financial Center. With its 632 meters the Shanghai Tower is the highest skyscraper in China and second highest in the world. The magnetic monorail – the Maglev Shanghai – is still another unique feature. Being a popular development center for bio-, IT- and micro-electronics, Shanghai is also home to numerous international financial institutions.

Taicang, its translation means „great granary”, is a city in Suzhou, Jiangsu province, on the north-western border of Shanghai. With its size of just about 823 km² and 900.000 inhabitants Taicang is a comparatively small Chinese city. Nevertheless, with an economic growth of 7.1 percent in 2015, a business- and innovation-friendly climate as well as a progressive infrastructure, the city has become one of the most attractive places for foreign investment in East China. In particular, Taicang has gained strong reputation among German midmarket companies, of which approximately 250 have already settled here.
