TCL chairman accuses US regulators of anti-China bias

Protectionism has hit electronic group's dealmaking, says Li

BEIJING -- The head of Chinese consumer electronics maker TCL accused the U.S. Tuesday of bias against approving deals involving Chinese businesses, which he says has significantly slowed his company's global technology acquisitions.

Li Dongsheng, founder and chairman of the world's third-largest manufacturer of TV sets, said Chinese companies have been targeted by American regulators for political reasons, and that it takes much longer for TCL's tech deals to be approved under the Donald Trump administration. The company is also known for making phones for Alcatel and BlackBerry.
