TAIPEI -- Taiwan is compiling a detailed blacklist of Chinese tech companies, as security concerns fuel a campaign to restrict the use of equipment from manufacturers such as Huawei Technologies.

"We will likely complete and publish a list of Chinese companies that could pose security threats by the end of March, and update the list from time to time," Jyan Hong-wei, director-general of the cybersecurity department of Taiwan's Executive Yuan, told the Nikkei Asian Review. "In that case, all government departments, organizations and government-controlled enterprises could have a clear idea when they are buying new tools."
