With the purpose of increasing the stability, transparency and predictability of legal environment for foreign investment, the FIL and its implementation regulations are the landmark development in foreign investment legislation since China launched the reform and opening-up policy over 40 years ago, which will have significant impact on investment by foreign investors in China as well as the overall reform and opening up progress.
