In a major setback to Chinese government US Senate has passed a legislation that could ban Chinese companies from listing shares on American exchanges.
In addition to this ban the new legislation may also ban Chinese companies from raising funds from American investors.
The bill, moved by Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy, on Wednesday would require companies to certify that “they are not owned or controlled by a foreign government”.
The passing of the bill is a reflection of the growing anger among US lawmakers towards China and its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
The White House last week directed the federal retirement savings body to halt investments in Chinese companies which is seen as the beginning of a financial war in addition to the trade war already on between the two countries.
Shares of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba saw its US-listed shares fall more than 2 per cent on the development.
Although the law can be applied to any foreign company, lawmakers have said that the move to strengthen disclosure requirements was aimed at China.
“The Chinese Communist Party cheats, and the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act would stop them from cheating on US stock exchanges,” Kennedy, a member of the Senate Banking Committee, said on Twitter.
“We can’t let foreign threats to Americans’ retirement funds take root in our exchanges.” said Kennedy
