Chinese government plans to replace
all foreign-brand computers currently used in state offices and corporations backed or controlled from
Beijing within the next two years.
And not only do they have their sights set on
they also want teams
to stop using operating systems
developed outside the country, such as
and start using their own.
This is a measure that could mean the
substitution of more than 50 million computers
from companies such as
-two of the largest PC vendors in the world- in favor of local companies such as
Lenovo, and that will start, according to the
in the middle of May.
The decision is part of a new strategy developed by the central government to
avoid the country's dependence
on technology from the US, a situation that is considered increasingly risky from a geopolitical point of view.
The recent tariffs and the inclusion of Chinese companies, such as
on the list of entities with which
US companies cannot do business
have shown the Chinese government how precarious the situation can become if the support of these devices or your operating system crashed.
But other factors also influence the decision, such as the
new guidelines on information security and data protection
and Beijing's desire to encourage and promote local brands and developers, who in recent years have managed to create
much more competitive and adapted
. to the needs of the country's companies.
Although the goal is to try to reduce dependence on foreign technology as much as possible,
it is unlikely that China will succeed in isolating itself completely.
It has strong local brands, like the aforementioned Lenovo, but still relies on components designed outside the country, like processors from
or modems from
which are vital to these devices.
Different agencies and companies
will still be able to buy foreign equipment
if they need it for exceptional cases, but only after receiving government approval.
