The Beijing leadership doubles down on its controversial “Dynamic Zero-Covid Strategy”; foreign companies feel the pinch from the Covid lockdowns, especially in logistics, according to a new European Union Chamber of Commerce survey; China’s regulators appear to back off a bit from their ongoing crackdown on China’s fintech sector; the Asian Games, scheduled to be held in Hangzhou, have been postponed; and China’s central bank extends a $15 billion credit line to fire up the coal sector.
