BEIJING: China has directed to eradicate foreign hardware and software devices from the country. This is the second time the government has decided to do something like this.
The orders came from the chinese government earlier this year. It was made public that the chinese government does not just look to replace American softwares, but the hardware they run on as well.
The US and China have been at each other’s throats from a long time now. Earlier this year, USA banned chinese companies like Huawei and ZTE which made the headlines. China, in it’s attempt to control the masses has kept apps like Facebook and Whatsapp out. The relationship between the two countries has went from a competition to a rivalry.
