Collectors will be able to store valuables such as art and gold without paying taxes or filling customs forms at a new facility in Beijing.
Swiss logistics group Euroasia Investment SA announced that its $100 million storage facility next to Beijing Capital International Airport will also boast exhibition space for auctioneers.
Euroasia is planning the project with state-backed Beijing Gehua Cultural Development Group as a way to service the burgeoning art market in China.
Auction sales in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan eclipsed the United States in 2011 to raise 9.8 billion euros ($12 billion).
The art industry in China has been plagued with fakes, smuggling and non-payments, problems which the Beijing Freeport of Culture project planners hope will diminish with its offerings of tax-free storage and art events.
The vault will be similar to the compnay's Singapore Freeport, a high-tech repository filled with a treasure trove of artwork, jewelry, gold and other valuables which opened in 2010.
