On September, 1, our country’s first ‘Statement of Recommended Practice’ has officially been implemented, placing charitable trusts into a clear legal position. On the opening day of the ‘Statement of Recommended Practice’, SDIC Taikang Trust came out with two new charitable trusts, ‘SDIC Taikang Trust 2016 SDIC Charitable Trust No.1’ and ‘SDIC Taikang Trust 2016 Hopes & Dreams Educational Charitable Trust No.1’.
