From a Chinese soy sauce maker to an Asia-focused asset manager, companies in China are rushing to distance themselves from geopolitical tensions over Taiwan following last week's visit to the island by a high-profile U.S. official. China claims self-ruled Taiwan as its territory, and the visit by U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taipei last week - in defiance of Beijing's warnings - has sparked a wave of Chinese nationalism and huge military drills. Chinese social media users have targeted companies and celebrities they see as unpatriotic or supportive of Taiwan's independence with strong criticism - such as candy brand Snickers, whose owner apologised last week for a product launch that was seen as suggesting Taiwan is a country.
China has suspended regular communication channels with the US military, as well as climate talks between the world’s two largest economies, in retaliation for US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan this week. The Chinese foreign ministry declaration came after the country’s military sent planes and warships to probe Taiwan’s defences for a second day. Taiwan’s defence ministry said 68 Chinese military aircraft and 13 warships operated in the Taiwan Strait on Friday.
