Can China develop its own open source code industry as tech dependency risks rise?

Emotional, Burning, Unlimited Tuned Laboratory

・Some experts say it should not be taken for granted that open source codes will remain free from sanctions in future
・Beijing has become increasingly worried that the country’s heavy dependence on open source technologies could eventually backfire

Debate about whether China can rely on open source codes, particularly those that originate in the West, has been growing in the country amid rising geopolitical and technology tensions, fanned by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in late February.
One view gaining traction in China, the world’s second-biggest economy and a major consumer of open-source technologies, is that it must become more independent from the global open source community and bolster its indigenous ecosystem to avoid being exposed should global tensions ratchet up further.
