TOKYO -- More than half of Japanese business leaders see growing risks in China, a Nikkei survey has found, as supply chain disruptions from strict COVID-19 restrictions and mounting tensions over the Taiwan Strait loom large over the supersized market.

Nikkei's latest quarterly survey of business leaders was conducted between June 16 and June 30 and received responses from representatives at 143 major Japanese corporations. Of them, 55.7% said business risks in China were on the rise -- outnumbering the 38.9% who saw no change, and 0.8% who saw a decline.
