From The Wall Street Journal, “China’s Curbs on Tech Purchases Draw Ire“:
BEIJING — China has rolled out regulations that could curb billions of dollars worth of sales of high-tech gear to government agencies, raising cries from companies across the globe and from the U.S. government.
More than 30 industry groups from North America, Europe and Asia — representing most of the world’s major technology companies — sent a letter Thursday to Chinese ministries saying they were “deeply troubled” by a new Chinese rule they say discriminates against their products.
John Engler, president of the National Association of Manufacturers, is one of the signers of the letter. (Available here.)
