China's relations with Western nations

The tougher stance reflects growing security concerns in the West about Huawei

January 29: China's foreign ministry says in a statement that Beijing will firmly defend its companies and urges the "stop the unreasonable crackdown on Chinese companies including Huawei". "More than a year ago, I advised the board and Huawei HQ of my intention to retire to make time for new commitments I was taking on in early 2019". Media relations staff admitted that "Huawei's world leading technology is now not world leading". Meng was given bail in a Canadian court soon after her arrest, and stays in British Columbia while the United States tries to make a case that she must be punished for her deeds.

Once CRN was able to enter the conference, we were treated to Brumby and Lord vigorously defending the company.

Huawei Australia chairman John Lord this week said the company was being unfairly targeted. Trudeau suggests that China trying to pressure Canada and says that "all countries around the world" should be concerned about Beijing's arbitrary use of its judicial system. "There are many of us who have taken part in policy discussions, but we never thought about [changing it]. This is a global battle being played out and we are to some extent the meat in the sandwich".

While the US governments' investigation into Huawei is ongoing, the indictments show the national security and trade risks inherent in working with foreign telecommunications interests. The company has always been accused of espionage and spying activities on behalf of the Chinese government.

If these issues are not judged to have been addressed by March 1, tariffs on US$250 billion of Chinese goods will increase from 10 per cent to 25 per cent the following day.

Foxconn again shifts Wisconsin plan after Donald Trump intervenes
Trump bragged about the plan and appeared alongside Gou at a groundbreaking ceremony last summer wielding golden shovels. Other costs to taxpayers are harder to quantify, said Steven Deller, an economist at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Sun Xuegong, a senior director and senior fellow of the Institute of Economic Research at the NDRC, said that the US' distrust extended to Chinese companies in general.

Brumby's departure from the Board will not massively inconvenience Huawei's local operations, as the Board meets infrequently.

January 16: Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, who is Meng's father, tells foreign reporters that Huawei obeys the law, including export restrictions, wherever it operates.

"This includes Australia, the EU, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, the Netherlands, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Spain, Denmark and most recently, NATO", read the statement.

He also said that Huawei's equipment has supported Optus and Vodafone to drive improvements in service performance.
