Longgang Administrative Service Hall has opened a foreign language service counter to better serve expats from countries such as the U.K., France and Japan on Monday, the first working day after the Spring Festival holiday, Shenzhen Economic Daily reported.
The hall also introduced a translation machine that supports voice translation for 83 languages and photo translation for 32 languages, hoping to make administrative services convenient for foreigners by overcoming language barriers via technology.
The machine is available for use at the hall and at the moment, it only takes one day to finish registration for establishing a foreign-invested limited liability company, according to staffers at the hall.
Meanwhile, investors from Hong Kong and Macao no longer need to travel to Shenzhen in person to handle business registration in Longgang District in a move to deepen cooperation between the district, Hong Kong and Macao.
Banks offering this service for investors in Hong Kong include Bank of China, China Construction Bank, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, Nanyang Commercial Bank and Chong Hing Bank. For Macao, the banks are Bank of China, China Construction Bank, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and China Merchants Bank.
The banks will assist the applicants to prepare, examine and authenticate registration documents, according to the report.
