Huawei Senior Vice President Vincent Peng wrote an article in the Nikkei Asian Review, calling on the Biden administration to change its course and face Huawei’s cooperation and challenges with a positive dialogue attitude. In the article, Bloomberg mentioned at the beginning: “Two years ago this month, the Trump administration blacklisted Huawei Technologies, restricting American companies from selling to us the core technology components needed to manufacture smartphones and other products.
It was followed by a package of sanctions, which included requiring TSMC to cut off the supply of chips to Huawei. Because TSMC uses American technology in a certain part of its chip manufacturing. The U.S. government took these actions because the U.S. believes that Huawei, as a Chinese company, may launch cyber attacks against the U.S. and participate in certain cyber espionage activities. “
Bloomberg also mentioned the issue of cybersecurity in the article. Taking Colonier, the largest oil pipeline operator in the United States was ransomed by cyber attacks as an example to illustrate that global cybersecurity governance needs a global perspective, rather than continuing to move toward trade protection Ism. If the Biden administration continues to follow the economic policies of the predecessor Trump, then the global economy and technology will face the risk of decoupling.
Bloomberg pointed out: “In the short term, the separation of the US supply chain from China will hurt some Chinese companies, but as time goes by, in the long run, according to the data provided by the US research organization Rhodium Group, the decoupling will cost the United States. About US$190 billion, will also damage the leading position of US companies in semiconductors and other technology fields. Because these companies’ revenues will decrease, forcing them to cut R&D expenditures. The damage is not limited to this. According to estimates by the Economist think tank , The complete decoupling of trade between China and the “Five Eyes Alliance” of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States will cause disaster to the global economy and cause losses of more than 50 trillion U.S. dollars. Even the US government’s own National Intelligence Council warned that , Dividing the world into several different economies will cause huge losses to many countries and companies, including tourism.”
According to Bloomberg’s analysis, the root cause of Washington’s entanglement and discord with China is not Huawei itself, but the fear that China threatens the economic and military advantages that the United States has enjoyed for decades. Although US-China relations may not improve significantly in the short term, it is clear that The current government is adopting a more multilateral dialogue attitude than its predecessor.
Bloomberg also mentioned in the article: “We understand that the U.S. government is currently busy responding to the new crown virus epidemic and is trying to revive the U.S. economy. We also hope to start a dialogue with us when the time is right. In order to alleviate concerns about our products and technologies. Worry, we are ready to accept strict compliance operating terms. We are willing to discuss with the US in all aspects, including developing manufacturing operations in the US, opening up Huawei equipment for independent testing, or licensing 5G technology to US companies or consortia. “
Bloomberg said Huawei’s 5G technology transfer: “Washington may consider Huawei’s founder Ren Zhengfei’s proposal to grant 5G technology licenses to U.S. companies. The content of the agreement may include all or part of Huawei’s 5G patent portfolio, including software source code and hardware. Design and manufacturing and network-related technologies, etc. There may be several US companies that have responded positively to Huawei’s release, but these are all based on the US government’s welcome to Huawei’s proposal.
It is through cooperation with international technology companies (including Chinese companies) that the United States has today’s global technological leadership. We hope that President Biden will not bargain with China on many unorganized issues like his predecessor. It is hoped that the Biden administration can refine the issues and analyze the pros and cons of each issue in detail. “
Bloomberg finally said: “Although there are still differences between the two sides, China and the United States must find a way to compete and cooperate.”
