[Global Times reporter Liu Haoran] affected by the border conflict and incited by populist forces, Indian people’s sentiment of “boycotting Chinese goods” has been rising in recent two months. A new poll shows that not only is it impossible for Indians to decouple from “made in China”, but nearly half of the respondents support Chinese companies operating in India. As many as 49% of respondents said that Chinese companies should be allowed to operate and sell related products and services in India, according to the latest report of local circles, a research organization in India, reported on the 20th. However, these respondents expressed caution about the business model of Chinese Enterprises: although they agree that these companies do business in India, they also believe that the data collected by them “must stay in India” and not be brought back to the headquarters in China. Thirty five percent of respondents believed that Chinese companies’ sales activities in India should be “completely banned”; another 14 percent said that such enterprises could only sell “made in India” products. < p > < p > < p > < p > “local circles” also interviewed more than 3000 small business owners in the country on the issue of “China dependence”, and found that the business community was quite divided on this issue. Among them, 7% of the respondents said that if we cut off economic ties with China, it would have “extremely negative impact” on business; 20% said there would be “a certain degree of negative impact”, and 24% said it would have a “positive effect”. In addition, according to a report by the U.S. Bloomberg on the 21st, the Indian authorities intend to further tighten the activities of Chinese people in India, and the visa of Chinese businessmen, scholars, industry experts and rights holders in India may face additional “security review” – similar to the measures taken for a long time in neighboring Pakistan. An unnamed Indian official said that the Indian government is still reviewing various cooperation agreements signed between the country’s universities and China, and it can be expected that cooperation between the two countries’ universities will be “significantly reduced” in the future. India’s foreign ministry did not comment on the report.
