China’s new cybersecurity law forbids citizens’ personal data to be stored outside China

UK firms running web services in China will not be able to store critical personal data of Chinese citizens on servers outside China, according to China's new cybersecurity law.

Businesses not complying with China's new cybersecurity law may face closure of their activities in China and their websites could be blacklisted.

The UK sees China as a major trading partner and the government believes that the country will give UK firms a fresh boost following the UK's exit from the European Union. During the unveiling of China's 'Belt and Road' initiative in Beijing earlier this year, Chancellor Philip Hammond said that Britain and China were 'natural trading partners' and that Britain would benefit immensely from China's new economic vision.
