THE REAL TRUTH
China is anti India. Stop buying China products and start buying made in India products as much as possible. Buy local support India
It is good step...Now all countries should look to reduce their dependency on Chinese goods...China became second largest economy by liberal economic policies of other countries who allowed China to supply all goods...Now they are feeling the loss ..
This pandemic has taught every country some of the risks of uncontrolled globalization which wasn't paid closer attention to earlier. Although globalization won't slowdown because global trade is the lifeline of world economy because countries can't produce everything on their own. But countries will adjust domestic supply of critical items even if that includes higher cost of production compared to cheaper imports. Self-reliance is different from protectionism that Trump promotes.
well-done Johnson, a step in the right direction
Boris the clown and all those hypocrites advocating boycott should smash Chinese made iPhone, electronics and goods they have, otherwise this self sufficiency or vocal for local ideology is akin to 'Emperor has no clothes' folktales
The senerio seems to be difficult for China in future, all major powers of the world changed thier strategies against China,this could change the world order in post carona virus period
There should be a Bank / financial institution formed to help countries move away from reliance on China...!!!
Now UK is also following Indian model !!!
China has never been reliable.
Finally, UK has acted. A good beginning anyway.....,UK will now say " Atma nirbhar UK"
Wishful thinking, but realistically UK along with many countries have to wait decades if not at all...most countries voluntarily 'killed' their local manufacturing to depend on "Factory of the World"...Now the little dragon is grown Giant, that's the fact.

You have no idea of the white man's resolve. China only has cheap labour and mass production capacity of cheap imitations.,Yes, it will take some time to get rid of the Chinese addiction

Bro, Hope you smashed Chinese made phone, electronics and goods around the house, before commenting...otherwise it's just hypocritical and meaningless.
Chinese are the most unreliable lot. Remember PANCHSHILA, and 1962 Chinese aggression against India
