On Januar 1, 2017, a new law aiming at stricter controls of foreign non-government organizations went  into effect in China. The law places foreign NGOs under the direct control of the Ministry of Public Security.

The actual impact of the law is not yet completely clear . Foreign NGOs operating in China have to brace themselves for more restrictions in China, and  more  bureaucratic procedures.
