Huawei responds to the new US export rule
Now, The Verge reports that Huawei has made an official statement on the matter, saying that the new rule will seriously impact Huawei’s business. In their official statement, which is delivered by Huawei’s Vice President of International Media Affairs, the company states that the decision made by the US government is “arbitrary and pernicious”, as well as is a threat to the entire tech industry worldwide.
Additionally, the company also states that the decision will impact the international global semiconductor industry in the long run and will lead to increasing conflict and a loss between the industries, as well as that it will result in mistrust of foreign companies towards the US government. Huawei also states that therefore, the action will harm US interests as well.
The statement finishes with Huawei confirming that the company expects an impact on their business but that, nevertheless, they will try to find solutions. The company states that they still hope their customers and suppliers will continue to support them.
The US Department of Commerce’s amendment to the Foreign Direct Product Rule specifically targets Huawei and undermines the growth of industries and livelihood of billions of people. We stand with our customers and partners to overcome the discriminatory rule. pic.twitter.com/0DAagA1uMB— Huawei (@Huawei) May 18, 2020
