Senior officials of three Chinese electronic manufacturers — ZTE, Huawei and Le Eco —on Friday met Minister of Communications and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad, who asked the companies to be sensitive to cyber security issues, and strictly follow the regulatory framework, while operating in India.
A senior government official said that all the three Chinese firms informed Prasad of their intent to invest in India, particularly in areas of research and development, and manufacturing.
Le Eco, originally a content creator, has launched its own handsets in India and has tied up with video Yep TV and Eros to offer localized content. Through the meeting, the official said, it was pointed out that China’s stance on foreign policy was different from its stance on global electronic trade. The comment came in light of China’s move to block India’s attempt at the UN to ban Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar. The official said that while Prasad encouraged Chinese manufacturers to set up facilities here, he also asked them to be sensitive to cyber-security issues.
