Chinese premier Li Keqiang said the country “supports the healthy development of the platform economy and its role in promoting employment, consumption, and innovation” in a visit to the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) on Monday. Li’s speech could further signal that China is loosening its tech crackdown that began two years ago. Guo Shuqing, chairman of the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission, said in an interview published last week that officials would provide more support to tech companies and make regulations more predictable.
