According to reports, Li Qiang said the country’s huge market will always be open to foreign-funded enterprises.

The Chinese Premier was quoted as saying by CGTN that China will work hard on expanding market access and improving services to provide foreign-funded enterprises with a better business environment and stronger support, so that companies from all countries can invest in China with peace of mind.
