Founder boasts world can’t do without Huawei
Ren Zhengfei, founder and CEO of Huawei has said the world cannot do without Huawei and its technology.
TheNewsGuru (TNG) reports Ren stated this in an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation.
Huawei has come under scrutiny in the United States recently.
Intelligence agency leaders and others have said they are concerned that Huawei and other Chinese companies may be beholden to the Chinese government or ruling Communist Party, raising the risk of espionage.
One of US’s concerns is also based on the use of Chinese telecom equipment in countries that host US military bases, such as Germany, Italy and Japan, the report added.
This had led the President Donald Trump-led US government in persuading allied countries to avoid telecommunications equipment from Huawei.
“There’s no way the US can crush us. The world cannot leave us because we are more advanced.
“Even if they persuade more countries not to use us temporarily, we can always scale things down a bit,” Ren said.
However, he acknowledged that this could have significant impact.
