China Facts: Protectionism, another example


Electric vehicles. China's draft law on 'new energy vehicles' provide that manufacturers, in order to get a licence, must localise not only the entire production but also the entire development process within China. According to a draft, this will be stringently monitored, inter alia, through a biannual renewable requirement for licences. This means that all foreign automobile manufactures would be forced to hand over 100% of their technology to their joint venture partners, mostly state-owned enterprises*)
