The Marriott International hotel chain and Australia’s Qantas Airways have changed their websites under pressure from the Chinese government to remove references to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Tibet, and Macau as separate “countries,” rather than regions of China. Beijing played hardball with Marriott after the hotel company created an online customer survey that asked customers which country they lived in. The choices included Tibet, Taiwan, Macau, and Hong Kong, all of which China fiercely insists are its territories, although Taiwan is governed independently and Hong Kong is semi-autonomous. The Chinese Cyberspace Administration declared Marriott’s survey “seriously violated national laws and hurt the feelings of the Chinese people,” and ordered the Marriott website and mobile phone app shut down for a week, including online booking services for the hundred-plus Marriott hotels in China. Marriott International Group executives were even questioned by the police for potential … [Read more...] about China Punishes Companies for Identifying Taiwan, Hong Kong, Tibet as Countries
