US firms feel unwanted in China

US companies feel increasingly unwelcome in China because of what they see as discrimination and inconsistent legal treatment, according to a survey.

The American Chamber of Commerce in China found that 38 percent of members felt unwelcome, up from 26 percent last quarter.

Companies surveyed by the organisation cited claims that Beijing wanted to squeeze foreign technology companies out of the multi-billion-dollar market for selling computers and office equipment to government departments.
