China premier seeks to reassure investors amid probes

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang sought to counter perceptions that his government is making it tougher for foreign companies to operate in the nation, pledging a wider opening to outside investment. The government will attract more imports, punish intellectual-property violators and treat foreign and domestic companies equally, Li said yesterday at the World Economic Forum in Tianjin, an event attended by executives from companies including Qualcomm Inc. and Marriott International Inc. A spate of antitrust probes of foreign companies and state-media stories criticizing overseas brands have escalated concern that China, the world's second-largest economy, is pursuing a mercantilist agenda to boost its own enterprises.
