Not the first time it was banned.

They always manage to keep using it despite bans.
This is like the time they announced the COVID lockdown 4 hours in advanced, and caused chaos in the country. I wonder whats going to happen to all the indian social media celebrities on tiktok. I guess the BJP will just destroy more jobs.

In 1979, when China hit Vietnam, it was something like 13:1 ratio between the PRC and Vietnam. The present ratio is something like 6:1, which isn't completely undoable.
I'm scratching my head. What are you even talking about?

are $14.14 trillion and $261 billion respectively. That's a 54:1 ratio. In fact, Vietnam's GDP is even less than Guangxi of China, a neighboring and relatively poor province. Guangxi's GDP in 2019 is just over $300 billion with a much smaller population.

China should really look into possibilities of setting up their next factories & investing in emerging economies which are stable rather than wasting time in failed whiny state who starts burning posters,shirts,ties at every chance to show their "patriotism" & going to implode eventually.
the thing is india is one of the larger growing market in the world. with ongoing tension between China-US, its gonna hurt company if they can't access both of these country. it also mean more US company will take advantage of this.

This is part of being Chinese.

Look at the Zoom CEO who gets screwed with just because he has a Chinese name.
its not part of being chinese. its just fact the tension is high, between china-india, and its not good for business. China work fine with russia and other nations.

Apparently, the constant MSM bombardment of investors escaping en masse from China to Vietnam and Vietnam replacing China in global supply chain has taken a toll on a lot of people. People start to lose perspective and proportion of things: how can you compare Vietnam and China in one breath in terms of size and scale. Do people know what they're talking about?

Is the Indian government going to force Google and Apple to remove Tik Tok from their app stores? If so, rest in piece 100 million + Indian Tik Tok content creators lol. But seriously if this happens I'm almost certain there will be significant retaliatory measures by the Chinese on Indian exports.

That’s an estimate based on pre-pandemic conditions, we can’t say for sure what will happen after the pandemic, the numbers are not pretty in India, and we will have to see how they deal with it.

Further, a lot of the machinery and equipment they use are made in China, whether it’s branded as Chinese or otherwise. They are playing with fire and might get burnt too. This will depend on how the India gov manage the bans.

They will need to massively increase their industrial capacity after they deal with the pandemic, which will be hard if Chinese heavy and electronic equipment is shunned, otherwise relying on service industry alone their economy will suffer further, since the amount of money in people’s pockets will be reduced and a certain level of outsourced services were already pulling out before and returning to their respective countries. It will be a vicious cycle, considering they are now killing apps which otherwise would have supported jobs in the service industry they will be relying on.

Idk what you guys are worried about.

During the last tiktok ban, people were still able to access Tiktok without much extra effort.

Proxies and VPNs are not blocked in India. There are non-google app stores.




If people in the mainland can access google and youtube, Tiktok would be a piece of cake in India.

When retaliating against India China faces the problem that there are no desirable Indian imports, and Indian prosperity is so low that sanctions won't hurt them much because most of them are subsistence farmers that don't even have disposable income.

India has basically created race laws against Chinese people (and others, for example Kashmiris), acting like they are South Africa during apartheid. Their crimes have no place in modern society. China really needs to strongly consider freeing Kashmir, it is the only retaliation that will directly hurt India, most other measures as outlined above won't work.
