What Huawei Founder, Ren Zhengfei, Wants To Tell President Joe Biden

Huawei founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei, says he wants to speak to President Joe Biden. Zhengfei is calling for a reset in relations between the US and the Chinese tech giant; whilst speaking to international media in China for the first time in more than a year.

 

The tech mogul is expressing hope for an “open policy” from the new administration. “I would welcome such phone calls and the message is around joint development and shared success. The US wants to have economic growth and China wants to have economic growth as well,” he said in officially interpreted comments reported by CNBC, AFP, and the South China Morning Post.

Zhengfei believes that such talks by Huawei with President Joe Biden could yield mutually beneficial outcomes for both parties.

“If Huawei’s production capacity can be expanded, that would mean more opportunities for US companies to supply too. I believe that’s going to be mutually beneficial. I believe that (the) new administration would bear in mind such business interests as they are about to decide their new policy. We still hope that we can buy large volumes of American materials, components, and equipment so that we can all benefit from China’s growth,” he said.

 

Due to the ban on Huawei by the President Trump administration, the Chinese tech giant is unable to do business with US companies. The blacklist placed on it by the Department of Commerce cites national security fears. The issue is also responsible for why Huawei is unable to license Android from Google, hurting its smartphone business outside China.

 

The pressure from the ban forced Huawei into selling off its Honor subsidiary to protect the brand and allow it to keep on producing smartphones. The Huawei founder however dismisses rumors that the company might do the same for its own smartphone division. “We have decided we absolutely will not sell off our consumer devices, our smartphone business,” he said.
