China probes automakers, technology firms
(08-07 11:32)

Chinese regulators have launched a series of anti-monopoly investigations of global automakers and technology providers, stepping up pressure on foreign companies that feel increasingly unwelcome in China.

On Wednesday, a regulator said Chrysler and Germany's Audi will be punished for violating anti-monopoly rules. Mercedes Benz and Japanese companies also are under scrutiny. A probe of Microsoft was announced last week.

The investigations are fueling unease among foreign companies that complain Beijing uses regulatory measures to hamper them and promote potential Chinese competitors in technology and other fields in violation of its free-trade commitments. --AP
