Necessity of GPG when using SSL

Hi everybody,

I understand the use of GPG end-to-end-encryption and use it with a  
few of my contacts. What I want to make sure is the following.

I am going to move to China for some time. My email ISP is located  
outside China and I connect to it via SSL. So if I am only concerned  
about the Chinese (whatever the reason; maybe my doubts are  
unreasonable?) and not about the complete end-to-end-encryption of  
GPG, the SSL encryption alone will do the job. Is that correct?

Thank you
