The Future of Chinese Listed Companies on U.S. Exchanges

Two recent U.S. government initiatives will have potentially profound implications for Chinese companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges. The first, done through an Executive Order, targets a range of Chinese companies that the U.S. government views as tied to the Chinese military for delisting. The second, done through legislation, requires the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to prohibit foreign companies' securities from being listed or traded on U.S. securities markets without a PCAOB inspection of the company's foreign accountant. Together these initiatives are expected to have a major impact on the more than 200 Chinese companies listed on U.S. exchanges.

This conversation, organized by Columbia Law School's Hong Yen Chang Center for Chinese Legal Studies and co-sponsored by Columbia Global Centers | Beijing, brings together experts to discuss recent developments and to consider the wider implications for investors and Chinese companies.
