Foreign business groups complain that China’s efforts to promote “indigenous innovation” by favoring domestic companies violates the spirit of its World Trade Organization market-opening commitments.

government purchases of computers and other goods. He repeated promises that foreign-owned companies in China would be eligible to apply to be treated as domestic suppliers.
