SHANGHAI (Reuters) – FTSE Russell said it will add Xiaomi Corp and Luokung technology back to its global indexes.

Xiaomi will be added to FTSE GEIS in two tranches, with 50% added effective from the open on June 7, and 50% added from the open on June 21, FTSE said in a statement.

Luokung will be added to FTSE GEIS in conjunction with the June 2021 review, effective from the open on June 21.

The announcement came after the United States decided to remove Xiaomi and Luokung from a government blacklist.
