Does anyone invest in Chinese companies and what is your view on the Chinese market?

I avoid China. I'd love to buy $BABA-2.0%, for example, but despite the fact that I think it's a good company (it was better before the sanctions and oversight by the government there) it's the government that's putting me off.
