It is not like AliExpress delivers COVID drugs. Just anothee delivery platform for Chinese goods.
Perhaps out of 1.2 Billion people , 4-5 percent are aware of it.
Anyway, Indiana should do what fits them. Data security is of prime importance. US has been shouting on top of their voice for a long time. Good to know EU and India are paying heed.
I think India only wants to block apps like Aliexpress, which are truly damaging to the Indian economy. But they also blocked few other useless apps so it won't look like India is targeting these specific apps.

This thing is SO FAR from being garbage, that you must be either believer or completely ignorant. But i see you. For me Samsung was and will always be garbage. (I am old enough to remember eighties.)

App ban is more of a symbolic gesture although little but it will hurt a lot in the long run. You see Aliexpress is not a small merchant by any means so the impact would be huge !

Don't even get me started on their absolute abuse of the UN and international standards and systems.
I won't deny their innovation; credit where credit is due, but to think that excuses their behavior is absurd.
gameworks.89, 24 Nov 2020Great move, china needs to be shown its place by any little measure possible !China has the most patents yearly and has an at least 6% growth rate each year. It is the second largest economy nominally and 1st in terms of PPP. They are able to eradicate poverty and change a desert into a forest. Not to mention their innovation in everything. First 6G satellite, for example. Don’t tell me they need to be shown their place.
[deleted post]People will probably miss AliExpress tho. All fake products aside, you can get some really good deals.
Josephnero, 24 Nov 2020India is fighting the good fight here Ah yes, the good fight. When you ban apps simply because they are Chinese. If they are made in China, it must be da see see pee
Yes the Chinese apps are the cause of Indians escaping the india.
