We did not do that and will not do that in the future,” the premier said when asked whether Beijing told Chinese companies to spy on foreign countries. He pledged to open more industries to foreign investment but gave no details. “We will adhere to the principle of neutrality and treat domestic and foreign companies as equals,” he said. The measure is part of an investment law that aims to address complaints that China’s system is rigged against foreign companies. “This is designed to protect the rights and interests of foreign investors and attract more foreign investment,” Li said.
