Actually there is a big push right now to move manufacturing to India and Japan. I believe the Trump admin is considering paying for moving costs to companies that want to do it.

Yes and Vietnam. Thailand is one of the biggest hard drive manufacturers/assemblers in the world...or were.. there are companies talking about moving their operations (auto assembly etc) out of Thailand to Vietnam ... Many companies are not happy with the Thai government's love affair with China.. especially since the darling little communist Vietnamese might smile and shake hands with the Communist Chinese but the bad blood runs deep between those two....

I do hope the world wakes up to just how low down sneaky and back stabbing the CCP/PLA really is and does all they can to sever ties with a country that will shoot you in the back and smile because you were stupid to turn your back to them in the first place....

With facing up to 4 years in jail or worse you gotta hand it to the citizens of Hong Kong for not bending over and taking it from the CCP. Problem is, signs and chants do not do much to deter a determined police force or a military tasked with breaking up any protest..

They were met with water cannons and tear gas in many cases after the government called the protest illegal.. China has the fastest laws in the east if anyone does something they do not approve of IMO...But they only make the laws if someone is watching...just ask the Uyghars.

The only reason it has taken the CCP this long to move against Hong Kong is world opinion and the money this would have cost them IMO.

At one time Hong Kong was a big slice of China's GDP 18% and now because of the mainland China's growth Hong Kong only represents 3%.

When China gained control of Hong Kong in 1997, it represented an economically significant addition to the territory under Beijing's control. Mainland China had almost 200 times as many people as Hong Kong, yet they did not even produce six times as much stuff. In the 17 years since the handover, though, the Chinese economy has grown a lot faster than Hong Kong's economy has:
