its part of a long term plan.
Winnie already said he wants to turn the "private" companies back into Government run entities , similar to the old style IE companies of decades past.
So basically you would have a shed load of governments that used HW tech & then next thing you know the company is being run by the China government, removing the tech could then take a decade.
This is exactly the same shit as we had when our company opened a factory & was told we had to fit a government "bridge" BEHIND our firewall so the local "government" departments could "resolve" internal & external internet connections.
Unless you work in China yo would not believe the shit that goes on...
decline a security visit and you get shut down....
open you mouth about what goes on & you get shut down.
