Reuters: RWR CEO Roger Robinson Comments on New Legislation Targeting Capital Markets Exposure of PLA Affiliated Companies

On July 1, Reuters report­ed on upcom­ing leg­is­la­tion from Sen. Mar­co Rubio that would tar­get the U.S. cap­i­tal mar­kets foot­prints of Chi­nese com­pa­nies that the Pen­ta­gon has iden­ti­fied as being “owned or con­trolled” by the Chi­nese mil­i­tary. RWR CEO Roger W. Robin­son, Jr. not­ed that “The list of PLA-affil­i­at­ed Chi­nese enter­pris­es released by the Pen­ta­gon is symp­to­matic of the broad­er chal­lenge rep­re­sent­ed by Chi­nese com­pa­nies in our cap­i­tal mar­kets from an investor pro­tec­tion, nation­al secu­ri­ty and human rights per­spec­tive.”
