Imagine a world without Tiktok, PUBG, WeChat, Xiaomi. Impossible? Not in India. Since a border conflict in 2021, India has banned more than a hundred Chinese apps, the country's authorities ferociously go after Chinese smartphone makers, many of which left the Indian market already. Two years on we look at the impact of this attempt at tech-emancipation from China and draw lessons for other countries.
