The Chinese government has ordered that all foreign computer equipment and software be removed from government offices and public institutions

The Chinese government, according to the Financial Times, has ordered to remove every foreign computer and software from government offices and public institutions within three years.

The new Chinese directive reflects in some ways the Trump administration’s ban on American companies doing business with the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei earlier this year.

Intel, Google, and Qualcomm have therefore announced that they would have arrested the collaborative relationship with Huawei.

The Chinese decision could particularly affect some of the most exposed American hi-tech companies in the Chinese market such as HP, Dell, and Microsoft.

Excluding China from Western know-how, the US administration has clarified how the battlefield of the trade war is also technological.

This is the first Chinese directive aimed at limiting the use of foreign technology in the country.

According to the Financial Times, around 20 or 30 million hardware devices will have to be replaced since the beginning of 2020.

In 2020, 30% of the devices should be removed, the following year 50% and in 2022 the remaining 20%.

Most of the computers used in offices are manufactured by the Chinese brand Lenovo, but many components are made by American companies.
