It would be very helpful if you would link to the source for official statements.
"Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) chief engineer Zhang Feng said VPN operators must be licensed by the government, and that unlicensed VPNs are the target of new rules which come into force on March 31."
In January it was supposed to be the end of February. Now it's the end of March. Please provide documentation.

anon from Hong Kong :

China would benefit so much from opening up from intranet to internet, I think it'll take Xi Jin Ping's successor to actually achieve this, though. Unfortunate!
