Global Times: Large Japanese Insurance Companies Stopped Offering Strike Policies in China

Global Times recently reported that all large Japanese insurance companies have temporarily stopped offering strike policies to Japanese investors in China. It is widely believed that Japanese investments in China will face much higher risks if the lack of strike insurance continues. Ongoing tension in recent Japan-China relations has resulted in a large number of strikes against Japanese owned companies in China. The Japanese insurers are carefully monitoring the situation and will make decisions about business offerings based on the future developments of the anti-Japan movement in China. Most of the Japanese owned companies in China have an SRCC (Strike, Riot or Civil Commotion) clause in their insurance policies in regards to strike coverage.
