BREAKING: Chinese Communist Party Orders Removing of All Foreign-made Computers and Software

The Financial Times reports that to boost the use of products from domestic technology vendors, Beijing has ordered all public institutions and government offices to remove any foreign-made computer equipment and software over the next three years. This move could have a negative effect on companies such as HP, Dell, and Microsoft which all produce software and hardware used throughout China.

The move is part of a larger effort to increase China’s reliance on domestic technologies and could add to worries of “decoupling” between U.S. business and Chinese supply chains. Washington banned U.S. firms from doing business with Chinese telecom firm Huawei earlier this year and is now investigating ways to supports its European rivals. It was recently proposed by the United States that technology sales into the U.S. from  “foreign adversaries” would be investigated for national security threats.
