Founder says firm ready for the worst but calls for global telecom teamwork

The United States government has temporarily eased a ban on US technology sales to Huawei Technologies Co, a move that analysts said is aimed at reducing impacts on the Chinese tech giant's sprawling global customer and supply base.

In response to the move, Huawei's founder said on Tuesday that the company has made sound preparations for a worst-case scenario, but he also called for global cooperation to move the telecommunications industry forward.

The US Commerce Department said on its website that it issued a 90-day license to allow Huawei to purchase US technology in order to maintain existing networks and provide software updates for existing Huawei handsets.

Wang Peng, deputy head of the think tank China Center for Information Industry Development, said the move signifies that the US realized directly cutting off all supplies to Huawei would hurt the interests of millions of people.

"Some small US mobile carriers, for instance, bought Huawei's cost-effective products to build their existing rural networks. A sizable number of overseas consumers also use handsets from Huawei, the world's largest telecom equipment maker and second-largest smartphone vendor," Wang said.

On Tuesday, Ren Zhengfei, CEO and founder of Huawei, said in an interview with Chinese media in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, that Huawei has overlapping interests with US companies, and the US government underestimated Huawei's ability to persevere.

"We can make chips that are currently bought from US firms, but it does not mean that we will stop buying chips from them. Instead, we should grow together," the 75-year-old senior executive said.

Huawei also said earlier that it has developed its own mobile phone operating system, which could replace Google's Android operating system in its smartphones in case the US software company restricts its system from use by Huawei devices.

Huawei is facing a crackdown from the US government, which accuses it of posing national security risks. The Shenzhen-based company has repeatedly denied that claim.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Tuesday that using state power to suppress foreign enterprises will not serve US interests in the end.

International trade and investment must be based on equality and mutual benefit, Lu said, adding that the Chinese government has the resolve and capability to defend its legitimate rights and interests.

Ren said the current difficulties can spur China to develop its own semiconductor industry. Pouring in money is not enough, and more professionals are needed to develop the sector, he added.

But Ren also highlighted that it is very difficult to rely solely on China's independent innovation to succeed and global cooperation is desired because companies in the global electronics industrial chain are closely tied.

According to the Financial Times, semiconductor shares are facing their biggest potential monthly drop since 2008, partly attributable to the US crackdown on Huawei, which puts pressure on the sector. All 30 members of the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index, which tracks companies that design, distribute and manufacture semiconductors, were in the red on Monday, leaving the index down 13 percent so far this month.

John Neuffer, president of the Semiconductor Industry Association, which represents US chipmakers and designers, said in a statement that the association wants the government to ease restrictions further.

Neuffer said the association hopes to work with the administration to broaden the scope of the 90-day license so that it does not undermine the industry's ability to compete globally.

Wen Ku, a spokesman for the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said on Tuesday that China hopes other countries will provide fair and equal treatment for Chinese businesses. (Chinadaily)

US President Donald Trumph has an excellent team of economic advisors who are extremely good in causing problems than solving any one.

Trumph has been harsh and unforgiving to Huawei, but only to make a great fool of himself!

Trumph makes sure that the Free World Bloc looses confidence in him!

GREAT JOB! WELL DONE!

Thank you, 1584austin!

Wonder if there is a place called home for US President Donald Trump and Boris Johnson of Britain!

Most likely there will be no address! So, they probably roam the place called home!

Slightly better than homeless on the streets of US!

Trump delayed implementation of 90 days is only aimed to satisfy himself for the sake of looking at his 2020 race for the post again. Many US companies will be in pain as well as Huawei due to its banning and restriction of Huawei's network participation, not just in the USA but fiercely campaigned against China and Huawei on the global scene. He merely buys time for his US companies to survive whilst encouraging and using proxies such as S Bannon and business-cum-political dogs to break Huawei and China's lead without ethical quality nor humane consideration.


Huawei must never look back other than surging ahead with multiple developments of its own chip sets, software, firmware, operating OS platform and hardware to suit. Google, ARM (Softbank Jap), Qualcomm and others are US government machineries & tools will forsake Huawei soon or later.
