In this episode of the Stratfor Essential Geopolitics podcast from RANE, we turn our attention to China's tech sector. China's Ministry of State Security has stationed investigators within the offices of Chinese ride-hailing firm Didi for the duration of a security probe led by the Cyberspace Administration of China. This follows not long after China announced that the firm's main app would be removed from the country's app stores for violating laws related to collecting and using personal information. Of course, there's more to the decision; Stratfor Asia-Pacific analyst at RANE Chase Blazek puts China's decision into context.
