Chinese stocks are on the move Wednesday after the country took further steps to embolden tech companies.
Today’s news includes the country handing out new domestic licenses for video games. This is the second time it’s done so with the first being last year. China initially paused handing out these licenses as it tackled how to limit play time for minors.
This, as well as other recent actions from the Chinese government, has it reducing restrictions on its tech companies. That is, in turn, boosting morale among investors hoping the stocks will rise in price.
Let’s go over how several Chinese stocks are moving today alongside the video game license news below!
