The establishment of pilot free trade zones (“FTZs”) represents China's major move to adopt a more proactive strategy of opening up in line with the new trend of global economic development. The State Council has since 2013 approved FTZs for Shanghai, Tianjin, Guangdong, Fujian, Liaoning, Zhejiang, Henan, Hubei, Chongqing, Sichuan and Shaanxi. Among them, the Guangdong FTZ, is to further open up the mainland to the world through in-depth co-operation between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau, and to deepen liberalisation of trade in services between the three places under the CEPA framework. This will provide more scope for Hong Kong companies to enter both the Guangdong and the entire mainland markets.
