    I don't think it is the right way of thinking. As long as the company is registered in China is fine, the ownership via stock exchange could be anybody

    Report: Zuckerberg’s criticisms of China divides employees at Facebook

    You can't have your Chinese brains and talent in order for your tech company to thrive and eat it too.

    China successfully sent the 50th and 51st #satellite of the #BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) into space on board a Long March-3B carrier rocket at 8:55 AM Saturday from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in SW China’s Sichuan.

    Only 4 more satellites to go before to complete Beidou-3 system and it will be a true global Navigation Sat System, a few years before Galileo

    So, from a 10% chance of Facebook getting into China. Zuckergberg has decided to reduce the chances to 0.00001% by his criticisms.

    The arrogant silicon valley bosses have to realize that the Chinese joining their business only because of their technical prowess and therefor an individual prosperity, not because the bosses' ideological commitment being attractive. The bosses do not own the mind and heart of the employees. The truth is, in every corners of the world, people's heart are always free and belong to themselves, not only in the so-called "authoritarian" states but also in the "free" states. The advocating of "freedom" is a double-bladed sword. "drop the stone on one's own feet".

    Tech exiting the US due to American administrative interference, particularly with China:

    U.S.-based chip-tech group moving to Switzerland over trade curb fears
    By Stephen Nellis and Alexandra Alper
    Reuters•November 25, 2019

    SAN FRANCISCO/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S.-based foundation overseeing promising semiconductor technology developed with Pentagon support will soon move to Switzerland after several of the group's foreign members raised concerns about potential U.S. trade curbs.

    The nonprofit RISC-V Foundation (pronounced risk-five) wants to ensure that universities, governments and companies outside the United States can help develop its open-source technology, its Chief Executive Calista Redmond said in an interview with Reuters.

    She said the foundation's global collaboration has faced no restrictions to date but members are "concerned about possible geopolitical disruption."

    "From around the world, we've heard that 'If the incorporation was not in the U.S., we would be a lot more comfortable'," she said. Redmond said the foundation's board of directors approved the move unanimously but declined to disclose which members prompted it.


    The foundation's move from Delaware to Switzerland may foreshadow further technology flight because of U.S. restrictions on dealing with some Chinese technology companies, said William Reinsch...

    "There is a message for the government. The message is, if you clamp down on things too tightly this is what is going to happen. In a global supply chain world, companies have choices, and one choice is to go overseas," he said.

    Morgan Reed, president of The App Association, which represents major U.S. technology firms such as Apple Inc <AAPL.O> and Microsoft Corp <MSFT.O> in Washington ...said, "The notion that China can be barred from participating in standards alongside the U.S. and the EU is simply not viable," Reed said. "China is too important as a manufacturer and an end-market to ignore."

    In June, more than two dozen standards groups - including those overseeing SD memory cards and Ethernet and HDMI cables ...warned Ross that the Huawei restrictions posed a "serious risk" that standards work could move out of the United States, which could end a long-held trend where U.S.-based groups set de facto standards for the rest of the world, they wrote.
