Taiwan to blacklist Chinese tech firms

Taiwan is taking cues from the US on how to clamp down on Huawei and other major electronics companies, with a blacklist of Chinese companies and products soon to be gazetted by the Executive Yuan. The big names on the upcoming list include Huawei, ZTE, Xiaomi, Oppo and Zhejiang-based CCTV and surveillance system manufacturer Hikvision, whose overseas business has been weighed down by controversies and espionage accusations. As well, Taiwan’s national security experts are understood to have also identified a number of tech startups and suppliers that may pose a significant threat to the island. Blacklisted firms will be banned from bidding on any government procurement orders.
