BEIJING (Reuters) - Foreign governments should treat Chinese firms’ investments in their respective jurisdictions fairly, Xiao Yaqing, the head of China’s state assets regulator, said on Saturday amid growing scrutiny in some markets, including the United States.

The U.S. government has blocked several high-profile deals in recent months amid rising trade tensions between Beijing and Washington, while European leaders agreed last year to consider screening investments by state-owned Chinese firms.
