Foundations and NGOs: concern about CAI sales

In the annexes to the investment agreement between the EU and China, there is also a paragraph dealing with NGOs in the People's Republic. The fact that such a passage can be found in the CAI comes as a surprise to politicians and those affected. Not only is it similar to the already strict NGO law of 2017, but China also reserves the right to fill leading positions with Chinese. There is also criticism of the fact that foreign investment for non-profit projects in China is still prohibited. For more on the impact of the agreement on German and European market participants, see our China.Table analyses on the CAI.
Working for foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs), such as environmental movements and foundations, in China is already tough. Since the beginning of 2017, a strict law has been in force in the People's Republic that severely restricts the possibilities of NGOs. Among other things, it has since placed the work of all foreign NGOs under the supervision of the Ministry of State Security, which is known for its often rude and arbitrary approach. Previously, the much more moderate Ministry of Civil Affairs was responsible.
