The international legal network
The LAWorld Asia Pacific 2016 Conference - China Outbound Investment Forum was held in Jinan, Shandong Province, China on 18 November 2016 with over 120 participants. Representatives from around the world included Chinese government officials and a large steel manufacturing client; USA and Australian government officials as well as LAWorld members from Malaysia, Singapore, India, Switzerland, USA, Melbourne, Sydney and China.
The conference introduced LAWorld firms throughout our Asia Pacific region and the world to more than one hundred investment minded clients of our regional Chinese member firm, Jointide. The Chinese have an outbound investment policy and each LAWorld represented area presented the investment and local legal landscape and opportunities in their country or region.
Tony Pointon from Pointon & Partners, Melbourne and Regional Director Asia Pacific for LAWorld masterminded this event along with Leon Ren, partner with Jointide in Shangdong Province. "A big thank you goes to our local LAWorld member Jointide and our contact Leon Ren for hosting this spectacular event. It was truly spectacular" said Tony "As well as the full day conference itself, our pre-conference dinner for the presenters was around the largest "Lazy Susan" dining table I have seen".
Shandong is the most populated province in China at 100 million people - Jinan having eight million; Jinan is one and half hours from Beijing by train and Jinan contains some of the most wealthy and active citizens and businesses in China; Jinan is home to member firm Jointide - which has 550 staff and is rated in China's top 20 size legal firms and top 50 by Award; Jinan is also close to the birth place of Confucius.
Immediately following the Conference Leon Ren said "I am glad to convey some good news. I have received a lot of positive feedback from the Chinese government officials and audience both during and since the conference. Together we showed our clients a strong global network and professional service capacity. Through this conference we all got to know each other better, and we have built a good foundation for further co-operation. I believe we have planted the seeds of wealth and opportunities which will generate growth in the near future."
