Global Businesses Ask China To Revise Draft Cyber Rules

Security may weaken, economic growth hampered, if draft made into law, say 46 businesses in letter to Li Keqiang.

The petitioners said the draft’s requirement that business data to be kept in the country "would impede economic growth and create barriers to entry for both foreign and Chinese companies."

China wants greater internet restrictions and believes sites like Google and Facebook should be blocked in the face of growing terrorism. The draft also allows the government to carry out security review as per its discretion.
