U.S.-listed Chinese stocks rallied on Friday after a Bloomberg News report that Beijing is preparing to give U.S. regulators full access to auditing reports for a majority of the 200-plus companies listed in New York as soon as mid-this year.

Didi Global Inc. led the advance in American depository receipts, rising 13%. E-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. climbed 1.3%, while JD.com Inc. gained 2.1% and Baidu Inc. jumped 6.6%. The Nasdaq Golden Dragon China Index rose 4.7%, just a day after locking in its worst start to a year since 2008.
