Zhongxin Jingwei Client On May 24, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website on the 24th, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lu Yong said that China has always opposed the politicization of relevant economic and trade investment activities and opposed the misbehavior of intervening political interference based on national security.

At the press conference, some media raised questions: The Canadian government prevented a Chinese state-owned company from acquiring Accor, a Canadian construction company, on the grounds of national security. Does China believe that the acquisition of a construction company will constitute a country? Security threat? Lu Hao said that the essence of China-Canada economic and trade cooperation is mutual benefit and win-win, and it also brings real benefits to both countries. As far as the Chinese side is concerned, the Chinese government has always encouraged domestic companies to invest in foreign countries and cooperate with the government to comply with local laws and regulations. At the same time, we have always hoped that the government of the destination country will provide fair treatment and a good investment environment for the company. As a principle, China has always opposed the politicization of relevant economic and trade investment activities, and opposed the mistaken practice of political interference based on national security. We hope that Canada will abandon its prejudice and provide a fairer and better environment for Chinese companies to invest in Canada. (Zhongxin Jingwei App)
