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

goes beyond South China and the Pan-Pearl River Delta Region to Southeast Asia.

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

better explore the mainland market and facilitates mainland business to go

international. Moreover, due to its broad hinterland, the New District boasts

Nansha New Area, or GDFTZ (Nansha), is blessed with the policy advantages of

being a state-level new area, state-level economic and technological development

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

Where scientific research is concerned, the research base of the Guangzhou

Institute of Industry Technology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences located

in Nansha has built a technology innovation platform for numerical-control

equipment technology research and development, and modern logistics industry

planning services; and it has been rated as a state-level technology transfer

demonstration base. Moreover, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

and Fok Ying Tung Foundation have jointly established a facility for promoting

the internationalisation of traditional Chinese medicine in Nansha New Area.

GDFTZ (Nansha) will devote great efforts to creating a regulated international

business environment in line with new international practice. It aims to take

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

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.
