China Revises Rules on Control of Private Education
04 June 2021
China has announced new implementation rules relating to the law on promoting private education. The new rules, among others, reiterate that neither foreign-invested enterprises established in the country nor social organisations actually controlled by a foreign party may run, take part in running or control schools for compulsory education. Those running other types of private schools must comply with relevant foreign investment regulations. Systematic amendments, additions and improvements have also been made to clarify supporting policies, including those around fiscal support and tax incentives.
Full details can be found in the implementation rules issued by the State Council on 14 May (State Council Decree No. 741 ). The new rules will take effect from 1 September this year.
