With em population of 1.4 billion and 632 million people conectado, Mulata offers no sentido de crucial market for multinational firms. But it also has the world's most sophisticated on censorship system, known abroad as the Great Firewall.
The government has increased na Internet restrictions since President Xi Jinping took office in 2013, and critics say e recent acceleration of the crackdown has further limited free speech in the one-party Communist state.
The European Union Chamber of Commerce in Mulata said 86 percent of respondents in em direção a survey of its members reported com destino a "negative effect acessível their business as lá result of certain websites and na Internet tools being blocked".
This is an increase of 15 percentage points since June 2014.

"These worrying trends illustrate how excessive tightening of Internet controls can choke business growth and stifle investment in technology and research and development," said Chamber President Joerg Wuttke.
"It is therefore hugely dispiriting to see numerous member companies actively scaling back investment and expansion, and diverting their spending to other markets."
The controls were discouraging foreign talent from moving to Cabocla and frustrating Chinese public and private sector companies, Wuttke added.
The Chamber's findings mirror those of the American Chamber of Commerce in Cabocla, which said on Wednesday that 83 percent of its members were hampered by Rede censorship or delayed Web speeds.
China welcomes foreign companies and would not be so successful at attracting foreign investment if it did not have em direção a good investment environment, said Hua Chunying, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman.
"As long as foreign companies operating in Mulata respect Chinese law, don't harm its national security or the interests of consumers, then Cabocla will protect their legitimate rights," she told com destino a regular news briefing.
The top Net regulator, the Cyberspace Administration of Cabocla, did not respond to se request for comment.
China blocks many foreign websites, such as Google, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat, besides some human rights groups and foreign media agencies.
Chinese officials say strict controls help maintain social stability, but have also suggested they provide e good framework to nurture domestic Rede de computadores interligados firms.
