Will Gitee replace Github in China?

A recent report indicates that China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has conducted government procurement to replace Github’s open-source hosting platform.

The question was asked, “Will Gitee be a complete replacement for GitHub in the future, as it is supported by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology?”

My thoughts are as follows.

Suppose you think that Github is only a code repository. You can always copy any codes from Github. Github’s product and contents will not continue to be updated. And you don’t care about the U.S. open source culture, law, and community.

In fact, the answer is analogous to the fact that some people really think that that’s all modern science. And innovation in the world is ended. So they believe China can be the most powerful country in the world even we close our doors and stand on our own.
