What are market access conditions for foreign-funded companies, branches and brokers?

Foreign insurers may establish foreign-funded companies or branches provided they have:

  1. More than 30 years' experience in a WTO member state;
  2. A net asset value of more than US$ 5 billion;
  3. A representative office in China for two or more consecutive years.
