US Business Group Calls on China to Ease Rules to Raise Confidence

April 22, 2014, Wall Street Journal

Covington partner Tim Stratford is quoted regarding visa requirements and press freedom in China. The article states:

"An apparent broadening of restrictions on the media also has the group worried. Journalist visas are becoming more difficult to get, it said, adding that a lack of information about issues such as financial data raises suspicions in the West about Chinese companies and makes it harder for them to raise capital outside China." 

"There is a very broad and deep concern about the level of transparency that we see in China," said Tim Stratford, a partner at law firm Covington & Burling and a former chamber chairman."
