Not much change
Actually this was a bit carelessly reported by Reuters. The Central Govt Procurement List that the story references is really a list of preferred suppliers for contracts below 500k yuan (around $80k). Those companies not on the list can bid for these projects but they have to go through a competitive bid.

Plus, it doesn't apply to provincial governments -  there's no change there.
And I don't believe either list applies to telco procurement.

Still, it's not a friendly move. The environment for foreign businesses, tech in particular, has been deteroriating for a number of years and will no doubt continue to deteriorate.
