Should Chinese Companies be given access to 'West'?

Maybe it is too late, but given this kind of news, should Chinese Companies be given access to 'Western' Capital Markets and be allowed to acquire companies (and indirectly extend their sway over huge numbers of employees?). So far the SRI and ESG - let alone the Corporate Governance Crowd - has abstained from expressing strong and clear views on this issue - but given the determination with which Xi and his minions proceed this debate cannot be swept under the carpet forever. Similar concerns can be raised with all other non-democratic states - and please no hair-splitting, we all know an authoritarian society when we see one.
