China hopes Germany's probes into Chinese acquisitions "an exception"
[BEIJING] China hopes Germany's recent investigations into proposed Chinese corporate acquisitions are"an exception", a spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce said on Wednesday.
Shen Danyang told a regular briefing that China also hopes Germany can be calm and create a fair environment for investors.
The German government has withdrawn its approval for a Chinese takeover of chip equipment maker Aixtron, citing security concerns, and throwing up an unexpected hurdle for a 670-million-euro (S$1.03 billion) deal on the home stretch.
