For­eign tech com­pa­nies face pol­icy re­view

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

For­eign tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies will have a hard time in China — at least in the short run — af­ter the world’s largest com­puter and In­ter­net mar­ket is set to im­pose a re­view pol­icy on im­ported net­work and tech­nol­ogy equip­ment and ser­vices.

The coun­try will launch a cy­ber-se­cu­rity test­ing pro­gram on ma­jor in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy prod­ucts and ser­vices used in na­tional se­cu­rity and other pub­lic in­ter­est seg­ments, a govern­ment state­ment said.

An­a­lysts said the an­nounce­ment comes as China con­fronts the United States on In­ter­net safety is­sues.

Most of the leading for­eign play­ers in China’s tech­nol­ogy mar­ket are based in the US, in­clud­ing Cisco, Mi­crosoft, IBM, In­tel and Or­a­cle.
