AMD appreciates the decision by China's top IT industry associations to actively promote brand-neutral specifications in government IT procurement tenders and extended its support to the new initiative launch, designed to ensure fair competition in government IT procurement. The Initiative for no pre-specified brand in computer tendering was jointly announced in Beijing by the China Computer Users Association (CCUA), the China Computer Federation (CCF), and the China Semiconductor Industry Association (CSIA). The central government and many local governments throughout China have adopted detailed regulations designed to promote and protect the principles of fair and open competition in government procurement. The Government Procurement Law of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the Tendering and Bidding Law of the PRC requires that government procurement agencies abide by the principles of openness, fairness, and equality. Moreover, procurement tender documents must not designate specific brands or products of specific manufacturers, and tender documents should not exclude or discriminate any qualified potential bidders.
