Japan is considering lowering the 10 percent ownership threshold at which foreigners are required to report stakes in domestic companies, two officials said, as Tokyo looks to better monitor Chinese investment in areas related to security. Such a move would follow similar steps taken by the United States and European countries in recent years and reflects growing unease in Japan about the possibility that Chinese state-backed companies could gain access to key technology. Under current rules, a foreign entity is required to report ownership in a Japanese firm once it plans to take at least a 10 percent stake. The change would see that percentage lowered, although the new threshold is yet to be finalized, the officials said. From October, its 10 percent threshold would only apply to shares with voting rights, rather than all outstanding shares presently, which means an effective tightening in the reporting criteria.
