China plans to expose tech giants, including delaying new rules, as economy slows

SINGAPORE — China is preparing to halt its month-long campaign against technology companies, according to people familiar with the matter, while officials seek to halt a rapid deterioration in the country’s economic prospects.

China’s top internet regulator is set to meet next week with the country’s vulnerable technology giants to discuss the regulatory campaign, according to people who described the meeting as a sign that officials recognize the toll the rules have had on the private sector at a time when China’s economic prospects more and more unclear due to strict Covid measures.
