Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, May 23 (Xinhua News Agency, Beijing) - In response to the U.S. sides statement that China will endanger American enterprises in China, a spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce, Gao Feng, said on May 23 that the legitimate rights and interests of all foreign-funded enterprises in China, including American-funded enterprises, will be protected by the Chinese government.
It is reported that American intelligence officials recently held a briefing to warn American companies and other organizations of the risks of operating in China.
In response, Peak responded at a regular press conference held by the Ministry of Commerce on the same day that for some time, some people with ulterior motives in the United States have been spreading the so-called argument that China endangers the security of the United States and threatens American enterprises.
The pure are self-cleaning. I believe that American companies dealing with China have the most say in whether it is safe to operate in China. Gao Feng said that in the past 40 years of reform and opening up, Chinas efforts to optimize the business environment have not changed, and efforts to protect the legitimate rights and interests of foreign investors have not changed.
The peak cited a recent joint survey by the American Chamber of Commerce in China and the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, which showed that more than 80% of manufacturing enterprises felt the negative impact of the US tariff increase.
Gao Feng said that this shows from one side that in todays economic globalization, the United States unilaterally escalates trade friction, which not only damages the interests of Chinese enterprises, but also seriously damages the interests of the United States.
He stressed that China will continue to improve its work and constantly improve its business environment by carefully combing and studying the difficulties and problems encountered in the operation reflected by foreign-funded enterprises.
We believe that Chinas further opening up and large-scale domestic market will bring new development opportunities to more foreign-funded enterprises. He said.
