HONG KONG -- American companies operating in Hong Kong believe that the city's new national security law is bad for business, with a majority of respondents to a new survey saying they feel less safe personally.

No companies or individual respondents were identified in the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong member survey, published Monday against a background of heightened fear of voicing criticism of the law or the government as well as growing tensions between Washington and Beijing. Despite their worries, most companies in the survey said they will stay put in Hong Kong.
