Chinese government organizations will accelerate import substitution in PC and software

For more than a year, PRC authorities have been trying to convert government agencies to using domestically-made computers and software, but the next tightening of requirements is likely to speed up this process, as mentioned earlier Bloomberg. Central authorities are asked to stop using foreign PCs and software within two years.

According to sources, at least 50 million computers will have to be purchased just to modernize the computer park of the central government of China. It is clear that the American manufacturer HP Inc. and Dell in this situation will give way to the “native” Lenovo, which still heavily relies on the use of foreign components, such as the same processors. Again, the requirements for replacing processors by domestic Chinese authorities are simply not put forward. The focus is on the transition to using domestic software that is actively developed by Kingsoft and Standard Software.

The next stage in the implementation of the program will be the import substitution of the computer park and software in the city authorities, two years are also allocated for these purposes. Individual organizations are allowed to purchase imported equipment if they can justify such a need, but the ability to do so is gradually being restricted.
