China's Tech Space Evolves to Counter Effects of the Coronavirus

The second quarter was a dynamic period for China’s tech markets. Domestically, Chinese companies have been enjoying high valuations, with government direct and indirect support and rising demand for tech as the economy gradually revives from the impact of the pandemic.

Internationally, on the other hand, Chinese tech companies have been facing ever increasing scrutiny form lawmakers. India has blocked major Chinese apps in the country, Britain pledged to remove Huawei from domestic networks by 2027, while the US has added more manufacturing and IT companies to its entity list.

Domestically, government support for 5G has partially offset the impact of international backlash.
