Huawei ‘s new isn’t ending soon. Back in May, the company land in serious trouble when it was blacklisted as a potential threat to the US national cyber security which prompted the US President, Donald Trump to issue an immediately business ban on the company which had led to other US companies who partners with the giant Chinese brand to drop their business with Huawei.
Although Huawei lost it’s Android license from Google as well as it license with ARM, Microsoft, Qualcomm, Broadcom and so many other companies, the company was given a 3 month grace period before it’s Android license is completely withdrawn until further notice.
But what just emerged is that China is preparing a list of “Unreliable” entities which are said to be damaging the interest of domestic companies in the east Asia country according to reports gotten from Bloomberg.
You shouldn’t forget that Huawei isn’t the only Chinese brand blacklisted by the US government. There are a number of companies blacklisted among which Huawei is the biggest. The list also includes all Huawei sub brands and subsidiaries like the Honor brand.
Even though the Founder and CEO of Huawei, Ren Zhengfei had made a protest against similar result against Apple in China. In a statement gotten on Bloomberg, a spokesperson in the Ministry of Commerce in China said “China will set up a mechanism listing foreign enterprises, organizations and individuals that don’t obey market rules, violate contracts and block, cut off supply for non-commercial reasons or severely damage the legitimate interests of Chinese companies“.
Now it seems China would be playing the so-called “National Security” card which the US is thought to be playing. With the list of entities China is claiming are hindering it’s local companies, the entities are in fact said to “Pose a threat or at least potential threat to national security”.
Its purpose is “to protect international economic and trade rules and the multilateral trading system, to oppose unilateralism and trade protectionism, and to safeguard China’s national security, social and public interests“, Gao said.
