Beijing to blacklist ‘unreliable’ foreign entities that ‘hurt interests of Chinese firms’

China will publish a list of “unreliable” foreign entities deemed to have damaged the interests of Chinese firms – a move set to ratchet up tensions in its escalating conflict with Washington, after the US government blacklisted Chinese telecoms giant Huawei. The Ministry of Commerce said on Friday that it would blacklist foreign businesses or individuals that violated market rules and contractual obligations, or took “discriminatory measures” to hurt Chinese business rights and interests, as well as national security and interests. Specific measures for those on the list would be revealed “in the near future”, said ministry spokesman Gao Feng.
