Running Apollo Server from China

Hello everyone,

We have a CI job trying to publish a subgraph to Studio that, when deployed in China (Aliyun - Shanghai), encounter timeout issues:

error[E031]: error sending request for url (https://graphql.api.apollographql.com/api/graphql): operation timed out

We concluded that the Chinese GFW is involved here since we’ve tested https://graphql.api.apollographql.com/api/graphql on Website Visibility in China by WebSitePulse

Is there any recommendations about implementing Apollo server in China ?
I see many threads suggesting using a VPN but our need is to use the legal way as much as possible.

Thanks!
