Dahua and Hikvision Win Over $1 Billion In Government-Backed Projects In Xinjiang

Author: Charles Rollet, Published on Apr 23, 2018

Dahua and Hikvision have won well over $1 billion worth of government-backed surveillance projects in China’s restive Xinjiang province since 2016, IPVM has verified from Chinese sources.

Xinjiang has become an international controversy over human rights abuses, e.g., the WSJ's investigation into China' 'total surveillance state' followed by the Chinese government attacking those reports.

Inside this note, we examine the projects and the impact this is having for Dahua and Hikvision.
