In this report, published with the Washington Post, we outline DJI, its denials of PRC government investment, and show that at least four PRC government entities have invested in DJI. IPVM also examines DJI's Xinjiang involvement, finding the firm's drones are widely used across the region's police and agricultural industry.
DJI and its PRC government investors did not respond to IPVM's comment requests. But Adam Lisberg, a DJI spokesman, told the Post, “DJI is privately held. The company is solely managed by and majority-owned by the founder team. Shareholders other than the founders do not participate in the company’s management and operation.”
Previously, DJI denied any funding or investment by the PRC government, now the company is contradicting that and effectively admitting government investment.
