Chinese Government Denies It Banned Apple Purchases

Claims that the Chinese government blacklisted Apple from its list of approved companies to buy from are false according to the Chinese Procurement Center. If the reports had been accurate, Apple would have joined Microsoft, Symantec and Kaspersky on the government’s list of banned trading companies. China holds that Apple never asked for approval to be considered for product purchases.

"Even though Apple has the certification for energy-saving products," the CGPC said, "it has never provided the necessary verification material and agreements according to the regulations."
