Government and Regulatory Work

National Development and Reform Commission

TransAsia has a close strategic relationship with the China Industrial Overseas Development & Planning Association under the National Development and Reform Commission of the PRC.  The Association consists of the top 200 Chinese enterprises, including giants such as the China Development Bank, BaoSteel, Chinalco and PetroChina. 

TransAsia cooperates with the Association to act as a bridge between the Chinese government and overseas industries for the advancement of Chinese investments across the globe.  In partnership with the Association, we jointly hosted the "Investing in the U.S. 2006" conference with Covington & Burling, and the "Invest in Australia - Beijing" conference with Freehills in 2007 and 2009.  These invitation-only events were each attended by over 200 senior business leaders and government representatives from both countries.  The Vice Chairman of the NDRC, Minister Zhang Xiaoqiang, delivered the two keynote addresses.

Other Agencies

TransAsia is also privileged to enjoy close working relationships with many other key governmental agencies, including:

These relationships have developed due to our skill and efficiency in providing cutting-edge, comprehensive legal advice, as well as our unique expertise in highly regulated industries and new areas of law. Our long-standing working relationship with key agencies enhances our ability to deliver both practical and effective legal solutions to our clients.

TransAsia is regularly called upon by several of these agencies to advise on new legislation and to prepare the official English language versions of laws and publications. Most recently, TransAsia was invited by the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film & Television to assist in the translation of China's media-related laws and regulations.

Regulatory Practice

TransAsia enjoys a reputation for providing effective advice and guidance on all manner of regulatory issues, particularly in highly regulated industries.  These include crafting business licenses, obtaining and maintaining permits, government relations and crisis management.
