Why China really wants to boost VPN services

With the recent news that China is looking to boost VPN services within its borders by allowing foreign ownership of up to 50% for per provider, are we looking at a change of heart from the notoriously anti-VPN regime in Beijing, or are other factors at play?

In my opinion as a founder of a VPN service provider, this is nothing more than a desperate plea by the authorities in Beijing to attract foreign investment against the backdrop of an economic slump and a fitful recovery. We are completely against such measures not least of all given China’s openly dishonest track record when it comes to governing tech companies.
