@Anne You are right,thats one of the ways of putting your economy in check. But then china seems to be in charge by trying to produce everything, how possible is that?

If the Chinese government is blocking US websites in China, suppliers in China who want to contact and sell to US businesses would be deprived of this opportunity as well. Trade directories in US may be important means for contacting potential buyers for Chinese suppliers. I think the loss would be mutual.

Chinese government is forcing their citizens to be aligned with government policies. By restricting the access to foreign national websites or ecommerce site, they are forcing the citizen’s to have business with other companies in their country. This may force other companies to stop selling foreign goods in their country or to invest them in china.

I do not understand if chaina can block something why not the other countries stop importing from china. if china is part of the world trade they should be cooperative like everyone else.

Why? Because our economical - business model is based on low expenses in labor wages for having as much as it can be high percentage of profits. That's why almost all the big companies have their factories in China.

I don't think China is a communist Country. It looks like a red dictatorship than a Country with democracy. Information today's is for the brain as it is the food for the body. It is vital for its people to have free access without censorship. Maybe you protect your state with this way, but you destroy your people and your business.

I have experienced this first hand and agree with the article.  I hope China can open up access to everyone in a way that the people, government and companies can thrive.  Right now it is not optimal for business needs.

@Anne - I agree, and it doesn't matter if their practices are unfair to their trading partners.

It is still a communist country and as such they allowing some forms of business but all under control. For them business is not first is last. No improvement is needed unless ruling party changes their idea. Motivation to do so comes from political dogmas. They are barley satisfying population needs and that keeps them in power. No rational business deals will take place if they can affect or disturb political machine.
