In an exclusive interview, the founder and CEO of Huawei, Mr. Ren Zhengfei on the release of the American administration led by Donald Trump to target the Chinese company confirmed that it does not require American companies to survive.
Covered interview with Yahoo Finance the impact of the previous product imposed by the management of Trump on American companies that sell ingredients to buy for Huawei, and whether Huawei poses a security risk to the United States, and setbacks of modern branch of Huawei in the United States.
Despite those obstacles, he insisted Ren Zhengfei that, in the case if the United States stopped supplying the company exactly where required, the production will not stop for one day in the future. Instead, the company will raise the pace of production while pointing out that there is no danger of a killer is threatening the survival of Huawei at all.
The challenge of the CEO to Yahoo Finance in the first interview video since the top twenty in the last month, when the decline of the American President Donald Trump about his decision to ban American companies from selling equipment purchase of Huawei.
With regard to the ban imposed by the US government on Huawei, it was explained, Mr. Ren Zhengfei that the company did not expect completely to be added to the black list of America. Due to concerns related to updates to operating system, saw sales of Huawei in some markets decreased by up to 40% in the first two weeks after the ban, according to executives in the company Huawei.
However, after the audit, said Mr. Ren Zhengfei company Huawei found it able to completely get rid of dependence on the United States on basic products, and decided to get rid of some non-core products that rely on ingredients made in the United States.
One month after the initial blockade, tempered Trump his tone from Huawei after a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the meeting of the group of twenty in Japan. Since then, the company started small and medium businesses in the United States thanks to Huawei, according to Ren Zhengfei.
” It wasn’t for the comments made by Trump in the group of twenty Summit any significant impact on the company Huawei so far. I resumed the supply of the vast majority of ingredients are the least important. But the United States has not taken any decision on the supply of the basic ingredients yet. “
Among the concerns of the government of the United States relating to Huawei find technology 5G. Think 5G technology from Huawei itself, according to the company, which means they will not be affected by any action of an American. Said Ren Zhengfei : ” the more advanced the product, the fewer the risks that we face “.
As stressed by Ren Zhengfei for the first time ever layoffs at Futurewei, a company for research and development subsidiary, is headquartered in the United States with the knowledge that Huawei was planning to invest $ 600 million in this company this year. Given that Huawei is still listed in the black list of the government of America, it can buy Futurewei send any of the results of its own research and development to Huawei are not allowed for any of the staff Futurewei make any contact with the staff of Huawei.
I always thought US lawmakers that the equipment and Huawei pose a risk to national security, but the management of Trump targeted the company in an unusual way – not only by reducing its business in the United States, but also to try to persuade its allies to join the fight to isolate the Chinese company.
For Ren Zhengfei, he felt that this strategy of the US government aimed at containment technologies Huawei advanced. Said Mr. Ren Zhengfei also that the position of the US President Donald Trump may have changed since that offer of the Ministry of justice on criminal charges in January accused the Chinese company of stealing trade secrets and violating U.S. sanctions on Iran.
Raised Huawei’s numerous lawsuits against the U.S. government since the arrest of its director of Finance, Ms. Meng Wanzhou, in Canada in the month of November last. However, I don’t think the Ren Zhengfei that Huawei posed a threat to the security of the United States of America. Said Ren Zhengfei : ” we do not have any networks in the United States, we do not believe the sale of products 5G our own there anyway,” he added : ” I do not have to trump anything about, and hopes to use Huawei as a bargaining chip, but it seems that China does not buy it, right? “.
It Mr. Ren Zhengfei United States of America, during his talk to Yahoo Finance and recounted stories about how, inspired by the spirit of American initiative in building his company. In the interview, which lasted for an hour, repeat the confidence in the legal system of the United States hopes to solve the problems faced by Huawei in the courts.
But he also believes that his company excel over their American counterparts in new technologies, and key areas such as 5G. Said Mr. Ren Zhengfei : ” although the United States is extremely strong, but they haven’t developed all of these techniques yet, so they decided to catch us by focusing on some of the issues non-professional “. He added : ” in 5G, there is no in America, many of those cutting-edge, Huawei is the sole provider for many of the chip the cutting edge. Chip us Optical is the most advanced in the world. We can live without the suppliers the Americans in many areas, but this is not what we want “.
It was Huawei’s crown jewel in the technological progress of China in the past two decades, and its development is in line with what is promoted by the Beijing based on the same in the technical major. Now, come on, dominate the sector 5G with more than 50 commercial contract. Due to concerns relating to national security, companies operate American communications with companies such as Nokia.
Said Ren Zhengfei , the future of the Internet of Things ( Internet Of Things ) that includes computers, super -, and ultra-large-scale, and high-speed. He believes that the United States lacks the contacts 5G through the Prohibition of Huawei.
Said Ren Zhengfei : ” even if they have computers, giant and wide-ranging, it remains the United States lagging behind because they don’t have high-speed connectivity, “ he added : ” Stop the work Huawei is the beginning of the United States had abandoned the knee “.
