Taiwan follows US in shutting out China's top tech

Alibaba, Huawei, Lenovo and other big groups expected to face government ban

The Nikkei Asian Review in January first reported that Taiwan was drafting a blacklist to ban the use of electronics products from telecom equipment makers Huawei and ZTE, surveillance camera maker Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology and others for all government departments, organizations and government-controlled companies.
