Huawei no longer seems worried about the American embargo on their product. On the contrary: in recent interviews, several managers from the brand declared that they do not need the United States to grow their brand.
It has been the top story in the tech world for several months now: The United States has banned the Chinese manufacturer Huawei. By including it in the Entity List, the Trump government has ensured that American companies are not allowed any interaction with the Chinese entity.
As a direct consequence of this? The impossibility of using Android for smartphones and Windows 10 for laptops. If the situation is still stagnant, and solutions have been tried many times without success, the company seems to have resigned itself and now wants to show its strength.
A bullet in the foot
If it were accepted that Huawei would have to cash in this ban on its business. It is doing very well for the moment. Its latest results show that its sales continue to increase and its profit is still growing, although a little slower. On the United States side, the issue of flexibility is finally on the agenda, while the government should soon validate special authorizations.
An economic player of Huawei’s caliber is not to be taken lightly. And if it continues to grow and flourish in the absence of the American market, The United States has everything to lose. That could well change the situation in the coming months.
The United States removed from the Huawei portfolio
The network equipment manufacturer activity, although less known to the general public, is the most affected by the American ban. On this point, it is the current CEO of Huawei, who says, “We do not expect the United States to remove Huawei from the Entity List. They can keep us there for life because we will be fine without them.
Source of such trust? Huawei is gradually reviewing its 5G device portfolio to eliminate all American technologies, creating 5,000 new stations per month. Some are still present, such as ARM chips, but are produced in offshore factories and are therefore not subject to the ban. They represent “70 to 80%” of the level at which they were previously.
No need for confrontation
In an interview, the founder of Huawei Ren Zhengfei, said: “We can survive very well without the United States. China’s trade agreements with the United States are not something that concerns us. And for a good reason: “We have virtually no business in the United States.”
However, these statements should not be read as threats of war. The founder tempered this by stating that there had been “no confrontation with the United States” and that Donald Trump could visit them today or after the end of his mandate as he wished.
If Huawei tried to start selling their smartphones on American soil before the government refused, he didn’t need that to climb to third place among international sellers. We, therefore, understand a little more Ren Zhengfei’s position on these stateme
