Located in the southernmost of Guangzhou, Nansha New District is the city’s only
gateway to the sea and the geographical center of the Great Pearl River Delta
(PRD) region. It is also an important hub for clusters of cities at both banks
of the Pearl River and the country’s south gate open to the rest of the world.
More than 10 cities with strong economic capacity such as Shenzhen, Foshan and
Dongguan and two Special Administrative Regions (SARs), i.e. Hong Kong and Macao,
scatter within this 100-kilometer-radius region. It is 38 sea miles away from
Hong Kong and 41 sea miles from Macao. The geographical proximity to these two
SARs and the support of Guangzhou and the Great PRD region with 60 million
populations contribute to the importance of Nansha New District. Its influence

It enjoys geographical advantages and strategic importance by linking China with
the rest of the world on sea. The New District helps Hong Kong and Macao business

industrial foundation, Nansha New Area is one of the country’s three shipbuilding

Section1. An international shipping development and cooperation zone, with focus
on developing services including shipping logistics, bonded warehousing,
international transshipment, international trade, bulk commodity transaction,
and auto logistics. The zone will serve as a test bed for the pilot implementation
of reform in international shipping services and customs clearance.
Section 2. A financial and commercial development experimental zone, with
emphasis on developing the headquarters economy, financial services and
commercial services. Efforts will be made to promote Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau
cooperation in financial services, as well as explore ways to experiment with
renminbi convertibility under the capital account.
Section 3. A Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau integrated development experimental zone,
with emphasis on developing information technology, financial back-office
services, commercialisation of technological achievements, and professional
services. Action will be taken to build a Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau producer
services development base, and to explore new mechanisms for promoting social
management innovations as well as economic integration between the mainland,
Hong Kong and Macau.

Some unique aspects feature in the Nansha New Area. For businesses setting up
and operating within the area, no minimum registered capital will be necessary,
though this is simply an eased and removed restriction for those entering the
market. Issues that arise within the FTZ are to be heard before an FTZ-based
arbitration and resolution center. Land will also be cheaper as prices range
around RMB 1,800 per meter squared.
Corporate income tax is pinned at 15 percent with accompanying E-taxation
services and procedures allowing 24-hour self-service tax ATM locations. Here,
the declaration of tax and purchase invoices takes on a digital concept of
E-invoices, allowing for a smoother and less tedious process. Corporate income
tax will also be eligible for up to 95 percent in rebates of local portion covering
five years onward.
Moreover, immediate VAT refunds on exports and immediate VAT GTP applications
are digitalized. Businesses are able to file their applications online for the
issue of invoices and then can proceed to have them delivered by post OR obtained
through the E-taxation ATMs. Personal income tax will also have a rebate covering
the gap between local and native individual income tax.
Shipping and cargo have an enhanced, sped up process with all incoming cargo
inspected in a specific area. This reduces time by 50 percent, rendering the
initiating formalities to commence before the ship docks at the port instead
of the previous and non-FTZ formalities of only starting once docked. A 24-hour
service is provided and automated to ensure all processing is done swiftly.
Further Developing Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Stronger links promoting the
already established Mainland and Hong Kong Closer Economic Partnership Agreement
(CEPA) are ongoing targets enabling service, trade and business liberalization.
Hong Kong and Macau investors already enjoy the benefits of this agreement and
have removed barriers when conducting business within China. The Nansha New Area
will build on this with continued promotion to Hong Kong and Macau firms. Having
the choice to utilize the existing partnership arrangement or the FTZ’s
facilitation measures and bonded agreements, Hong Kong firms will have even
greater preferential enticement to do business in the area. Ultimately, the goal
is a deepened and more liberalized co-operation.
This proximity will be of mutual benefit to both the Mainland, Hong Kong and
Macau investors. Cross-border Renminbi business and further developing Hong Kong
as a destination for offshore Renminbi will attract Chinese firms to use this
as a going-out stepping stone. Internationalizing the Renminbi by means of this
process will target Guangdong enterprises to strategically move towards Hong
Scientific collaborations, such as international telecommunication channels
geared toward Hong Kong and Macau, and major Hong Kong universities have been
cooperating within the zone. Increased cross-border mobility for qualified
professionals from Hong Kong and Macau will allow the Nansha New Area to continue
to attract foreign talents.
Open Economic System
Based on previous pilot reforms, the economic system of the Guangdong FTZ and
the Nansha New Area will seek to be operational and fully implemented over a
span of three to five years. Creating advantages on an international scale will
include the establishment of a free trade park with a regulated environment.
Supervision will come in a new form of a market-oriented administration and
management system to increase efficiency and solidify a platform of ‘low entry
threshold, high control standards’. As with other FTZs, the negative list
implemented in the zone will reduce and remove access restrictions on foreign
invested firms, thereby increasing openness and transparency.
Financially, lower entry requirements exist for foreign equity funds doing
business in sectors of investment and fund management and capital settlement.
Multi-currency industrial investment funds and potential issuing of
multi-currency land trust funds are being analyzed on the basis of feasibility
and implementation. Leasing options will also enjoy reforms as the area hopes
to achieve uniform market access requirements for finance lease management and
As mentioned before, importing into the area from overseas is much easier, with
some speculation that goods may not need to be checked. Nevertheless,
preferential measures of expediting declaration and reduced fees are in place.
E-commerce as well will allow individuals and firms to make orders with goods
arriving in the zone with the applicable taxation laws levied.
Overall, the Nansha New Area has multiple advantages and a comprehensive set
of policies to support future development – financial innovation as an
international hub; custom clearance convenience that streamlines trade;
cross-border e-commerce; and an expedited commercial registration process. With
China continuing to experiment and implement Free Trade Zones throughout the
coast, investors and firms will see anincrease in the ease of doing business
in the country. Regardless of the timing of future developments, the Guangdong
FTZ and its accompanying three areas will be pivotal to developing the future
goals of China’s economic and global outlook.
