Foreign tech companies face policy review
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.
