BEIJING, May 20 (Xinhua) -- China's Ministry of Justice has launched an English-language website to offer free legal consultation services to foreign enterprises, organizations and citizens in China, according to a press conference held by the ministry Monday.

The website will help solve legal problems that foreign entities or persons may have in China, such as in the areas of investment, trade, finance, environmental protection, border entry and exit, employment and marriage, according to vice minister Xiong Xuanguo.

Lawyers with deep knowledge of Chinese laws and good English proficiency will give online answers to consultations submitted by foreign citizens, Xiong said.

The aim of the English website is to better serve China's opening up, especially the Belt and Road Initiative, and to improve the legal environment for foreign enterprises to do business in China, he said.
