"I've been particularly troubled by punitive actions that have been taken against US firms in recent months," Yellen said at a roundtable that brought together representatives of some of the largest companies in the US that have businesses in China, including Boeing, Bank of America and Cargill.



During her three-day visit, the treasury secretary is also sitting down with senior Chinese officials for high-stakes meetings amid escalating tensions between the world's two largest economies.


Yellen also criticized new export controls announced by China on two minerals crucial to semiconductor technologies, gallium and germanium. Eighty percent of the world's gallium is in China.
