Offering a "mixed war" in technical trade

On the 10th, US President Trump raised the tariff on Chinese goods of 200 billion US dollars from 10% to 25%. China vowed to fight back. Therefore, listing Huawei in the list of bad companies may be a way for Trump to try to gain an advantage in trade negotiations.

According to AFP, Washington, May 16, the US pressure on Huawei has made the Chinese telecom giant a point of economic and technological competition between China and the United States.

The quarrel over Huawei's issue has increased the uncertainty between Washington and Beijing to start negotiations on ending a bruised trade war.

According to the report, the battle around Huawei is not only for the security of telecommunications in the United States. Washington believes that the rise of Huawei marks China’s attempt to seize global technological and economic leadership from the United States.

In addition, according to Agence France-Presse, Washington on May 16, the Sino-US trade war entered a new dimension, and Washington moved out of the technology industry "cannon" to try to curb Huawei, a participant in the mobile network, especially in the 5G field.

The report said that Huawei was stared by the US authorities for a long time, and the United States said it was suspected of launching "espionage activities" for Beijing. The United States has never produced evidence to substantiate these allegations, but the United States has forced allies to use Huawei’s infrastructure. Trump’s decree is the most rigorous measure against the booming Chinese technology industry.

The report also said that Beijing won the manufacturing war long time ago, and now China is planning to lead the future technology.

According to a report by the US Foreign Scholars website on May 17, the United States announced on the 15th that it would blacklist China's Huawei company and prohibit US companies from supplying products to Huawei.

The report believes that given the globalization and the interdependence of China and the United States in the technical field, this move will hit the company that the Chinese are proud of.

According to the report, in the worst case, this decision will seriously affect Huawei in the short term. But it is almost certain that Huawei and other large Chinese companies will take the initiative to break away from the dependence on US components and improve their risk resistance. In the long run, the result of this decoupling will further consolidate all ports of China's domestic high-tech supply chain.

The report said that the Trump administration's approach may soon fail. First of all, in China, no one – including the highest level of Huawei – believes that this decoupling will soon reverse. Second, the Chinese government has been deeply dissatisfied with the joint economic war launched by the Trump administration. Using Huawei's dependence on US suppliers as a weapon will only make things worse.

The report writes that from the current point of view, the scope of the Sino-US struggle is far more than trade. Although the Trump administration regards tariffs as the main means of trade wars, it is also expanding its means to export controls.

China resolutely opposes US bullying

According to the Hong Kong "South China Morning Post" website reported on May 17, Huawei issued a statement on the 16th, against the US Department of Commerce's decision to include the company and 70 affiliates in the export restrictions list, and warned that this decision will be The US company that cooperates with Huawei has caused huge economic losses."

Huawei said the decision "will affect tens of thousands of jobs in the United States and undermine cooperation and mutual trust in global supply chains." The US Department of Commerce has not yet responded to this.

According to a report by the Russian satellite news agency Beijing on May 16, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Hao said at a regular press conference on May 16 that "China firmly opposes any country's unilateral sanctions against Chinese entities under its own domestic laws. It also opposes the generalization of the concept of national security and the abuse of export control measures. We urge the US to stop wrong practices... to avoid further impact on Sino-US economic and trade relations." Lu said that if Chinese enterprises are treated unfairly, China certainly has the right to take necessary measures to safeguard its legitimate and reasonable rights and interests.

In addition, according to the US Consumer News and Business Channel website reported on May 16, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce warned on the 16th that the actions taken by the United States against companies such as Huawei may have a further impact on Sino-US economic and trade relations. The spokesman of the Ministry of Commerce of China urged the US to stop wrong practices and create conditions for normal business and cooperation between the two countries. He criticized the use of national security as a tool for trade protectionism.

According to Singapore's "Lianhe Zaobao" website reported on May 17, according to sources, Huawei told global suppliers earlier that it hopes to store the key components needed for production for one year, preparing for the uncertainty of the trade war.

Huawei repeatedly denied spying charges and said in a statement that restricting Huawei's business in the United States would not make the US safer or stronger. On the contrary, this will only make the United States use poorer and more expensive alternatives, making the United States fall behind in the 5G field.

The report quoted Chinese media reports as saying that Huawei’s president’s office wrote to the staff on the 16th that it had been expected to suppress the United States many years ago and that it could not stop the pace. According to Huawei, the company has made predictions many years ago, and has invested heavily in research and development and business continuity to ensure that the company's operations are not affected in the extreme.

Dragging down global 5G network construction

According to the Associated Press Washington May 16 report, the Trump administration decided to restrict the sale of all US technology to Chinese telecom giant Huawei for national security considerations, which will inevitably harm the interests of US suppliers and accelerate Beijing to higher Degree of technical independence efforts.

According to the report, about one-third of Huawei's suppliers are US companies, including chip makers Broadcom, Qualcomm and Intel. These restrictions will also ban Google from licensing its value-added components and services for its Android operating system, and Google is now free for Huawei and other intelligence.Mobile phoneProvide these services. This means that Google may lose revenue.

According to a report on the BBC website on May 17, Huawei issued a statement warning that the US policy will cause US companies to suffer economic hardships, and thousands of US jobs may be affected. "No one will benefit from this decision." ".

In 2018, Huawei spent $70 billion on parts procurement, of which $11 billion was paid to US companies, including Qualcomm, Intel and Micron.

In addition, according to the British "Financial Times" website reported on May 16, on the 16th, after the Trump administration increased its crackdown on Huawei, the shares of the Chinese telecommunications company's largest suppliers in the United States suffered a decline.

About 5% of US chip maker Qualcomm's revenue comes from Huawei. The company's share price fell nearly 4% before noon on the 16th. Shares of another supplier, Broadcom, fell 2.5%.

According to reports, on behalf of Huawei suppliers Qualcomm, Intel andMicrosoftThe Information Technology Industry Committee expressed concern about the government’s actions and urged the government to “work with the industry” to minimize adverse effects.

According to a report on the Bloomberg News website on May 16, the Trump administration is coming up with a "big killer" that will stop China's rapid rise, which could have devastating consequences for the rest of the world.

The White House launched a two-pronged attack on Huawei on the 15th. If implemented, this move may cause the Chinese telecom company to be hit hard, causing the US chip giants such as Qualcomm and Micron Technology to be in a slump, and may disrupt the spread of important 5G wireless networks around the world.

Experts say the negative impact on the global 5G market will be huge. The overall adoption speed of 5G networks will slow down, which will eventually cause damage to telecom operators and global consumers.

Europe refuses to "follow the Americans"

According to the report of the German Voice Radio on May 16, after the launch of the Huawei ban in the United States, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Mark Long and Dutch Prime Minister Lutwe stressed that they would not exclude the Chinese network equipment supplier. Outside the new 5G mobile network.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Germany has developed a very reliable way for companies to participate in the construction of 5G networks. It sets out general safety standards that apply to all companies. Merkel stressed: "For us, these standards are the key starting point for us to decide who is involved in the construction."

The European Commission has recommended that member states should not give up Huawei 5G equipment in principle. The German Industry Federation called on the EU to "hold on its own path." The federation pointed out that the EU must "independently decide" which market participants can join the 5G network infrastructure.

According to the Austrian "News" website reported on May 17, the United States is blocking Huawei outside the market and postponing the construction of 5G. There is no reason for Europe to follow Americans.

At present, the suppression of 5G market leaders will delay the global promotion of new mobile standards. In Europe, the pressure to be forced to choose a side station is increasing.

So far, despite the huge threat from the United States, the EU countries have avoided excluding Huawei from the construction of its 5G network. If they are like French President Mark Long, everything will not change. He said at a technology show in Paris that Europe will not succumb to the pressure of the United States. Europe must remain “pragmatic and cautious” on this issue at the same time.

He used the above attitude to reflect the emotions of the European continent. The UK is considering not entrusting some of its core network to Huawei. Germany wants to carry out more stringent controls, but it is clear that it is impossible to exclude individual suppliers. Austrian Telecom CEO Bill Vert welcomed the plan to set up a certification body for the EU's network equipment providers. As early as last year, Huawei has set up a security center in Bonn to let countries know about this technology.

According to the report, in fact, it makes no sense for Europe to stand with the United States. Although the United States has issued warnings since 2012, China has never been caught in spying through its back door in its products.

The accusations that Americans are forced to work for intelligence agencies are also unconvincing. Because the United States itself has this obligation since 1994. Since the outbreak of Snowden's disclosure, the installation of the National Security Agency's backdoor procedures in US equipment has been well documented.
