U.S. may scale back Huawei trade restrictions to help existing customers

Huawei's Hi Silicon Says It Has Long Been Preparing for US Ban Scenario

U.S. may scale back restrictions on Huawei - U.S. State Department

His comments come after the US Commerce Department barred American firms from doing business with Huawei and its 68 affiliates without government approval.

Ernest McDuffie, founder of the global McDuffie Group, considered the current challenges Huawei is facing a real opportunity for leadership at the worldwide level to address the global supply chain security issue.

Chinese telecom giant Huawei has said that it is still open to addressing USA security concerns.

July 2018: Australia said that it will ban the Huawei's 5G rollout because of security concerns.

But Reuters reported on May 19 that, according to a source close to the matter, Google responded to the usa government's export ban and has suspended "the transfer of hardware, software, and technical services except those publicly available via open source licensing". The three-month cushion is a conservative internal estimate and the company could well sustain operations beyond that time-frame, they said.

USA prosecutors unsealed the indictment in January accusing the company of engaging in bank fraud to obtain embargoed US goods and services in Iran and to move money out of the country via the worldwide banking system.

"The global economic center will inevitably move to Asia". He insisted the growing campaign against Huawei remained a separate matter from broader trade negotiations between the USA and China, which have stalled in recent days. The U.S. ban hits the Chinese company just as it's jockeying for a big chunk of the hundreds of billions of dollars that the likes of Vodafone Group (LON:) and China Mobile Ltd. are devising around the world, laying the foundation for future technologies from autonomous cars to smart cities.

In the statement, Huawei said that it will "continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem" but has not revealed exactly how it plans to do so. She points to another Chinese tech giant, ZTE, which ended up on the entity list a year ago. President Trump got a call from President Xi, and he negotiated his way out of it.

Shares in other United States chipmakers that supply to Huawei - including Qorvo, Skyworks Solutions, and Xilinx - also ended the day in the red.
