Q: On November 24th,the Ministry of Electronics & IT notified that the Indian side decided to block the usage of 43 Mobile Apps with Chinese background, including AliExpress, DingTalk, etc. What’s your comment?

A: We firmly oppose the Indian side’s repeated use of “national security” as an excuse to prohibit some Mobile APPs with Chinese background.

The Chinese government has always required overseas Chinese companies to abide by international rules, operate in compliance with laws and regulations and conform to public order and good morals.

We hope the Indian side provides a fair, impartial and non-discriminatory business environment for all market players from various countries including China, and rectify the discriminatory practices violating WTO rules.

China and India are the opportunities of development to each other rather than threats. Both sides should bring bilateral economic and trade relations back to the right path for mutual benefit and win-win results on the basis of dialogue and negotiation.
