"Britain calls on Japan to ban Huawei"

The UK last week decided to ban Chinese technology company Huawei from supplying 5G network equipment. Boris Johnson's government has decided to ban Huawei from the end of this year, December 31.

The decision was taken by the British government, which concluded that Huawei would increase its security risks. The government has instructed telecom service providers to replace existing Huawei equipment within the next seven years.

With the ban on Chinese company Huawei, which is considered to be the best in 5G technology, now the issue of who can bet on the expansion of 5G in the UK is under discussion. Meanwhile, the British government has urged countries including Japan to manufacture 5G equipment without using Huawei's equipment.

The UK's technology minister, Oliver Dowden, said the government was encouraging another company to compete with Huawei in the 5G device. Companies in Japan, Sweden, South Korea, and Finland have been urged to move forward with the equipment.

Huawei posts 13.1% revenue growth amid pandemic, sanctions

16th May 2021
"Huawei Technologies reported Tuesday that its revenue grew 13.1% in the first half of the year compared with a year earlier, despite sanctions from the U.S and challenges from the coronavirus pandemic."

Huawei Technologies reported Tuesday that its revenue grew 13.1% in the first half of the year compared with a year earlier, despite sanctions from the U.S and challenges from the coronavirus pandemic.

Revenue rose to 454 billion yuan ($64.9 billion) in January-June compared to 401.3 billion yuan during the same period last year. The company said its profit margin was 9.2%, compared to 8.7% last year.

The telecommunications equipment firm, based in the southern commercial hub of Shenzhen, is facing efforts by the U.S. government to restrict Huawei’s ability to procure technology and components from American suppliers. U.S. officials say Huawei is a security risk. The company denies that.

In May last year, Washington put Huawei on a blacklist that forbids U.S. companies from doing business with it without permission from the government. That has hindered Huawei’s access to components like computer chips and software such as Google’s Android mobile operating system.

In May, officials imposed even tighter rules aimed at limiting Huawei’s access to semiconductors by barring chipmakers that use U.S. technology in chip design from shipping to Huawei without obtaining a license.

The U.S. has also been applying pressure on countries to exclude Huawei from upcoming, ultrafast 5G mobile networks.

Huawei is awaiting a decision this week on whether it will be allowed to supply 5G network equipment in the U.K., six months after officials initially agreed that the company could have a limited role in its networks.

The company is also expecting decisions by Germany later this year.

Meng Wanzhou, the company’s chief financial officer and daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, is currently under house arrest in Canada, in an extradition trial that could result in her being sent to the U.S. to face charges that include bank fraud and a violation of trade sanctions.
