Citadel’s billionaire founder Ken Griffin is upholding his plans for Asia expansion, encouraged by China President Xi Jinping’s renewed focus on the economy.

Beijing’s recent moves to relax Covid measures and to support property markets “indicates that Xi’s team is committed to, once again, re-accelerating Chinese economic growth,” Griffin said in an interview at the Bloomberg New Economy Forum in Singapore.
