Huawei’s Rotating Chairman Guo Ping said that the US actions against Huawei will harm its customers worldwide. He mentioned this In his keynote address at Huawei”s annual analyst summit.
“We still haven’t figured it out. The US government still persists in attacking Huawei, but what will that bring to the world,” Guo said.
The export controls Guo refers to prevents chip-makers using US technology and software in their design from selling to Huawei without the permission of the US government.
“In its relentless pursuit to tighten its stranglehold on our company, the US government has decided to proceed and completely ignore the concerns of many companies and industry associations.
“This decision was arbitrary and pernicious and threatens to undermine the entire industry worldwide. This new rule will impact the expansion, maintenance, and continuous operations of networks worth hundreds of billions of dollars that we have rolled out in more than 170 countries,” Huawei said in an official statement.
