Huawei To Strengthen Its UK Business After Failed US Expansion Plan

There is currently a huge growth in the smartphone manufacturing industry and many companies are seeking to expand to other countries. A couple of weeks ago, Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, had a failed attempt to expand to the United States and now, the company is shifting its attention to strengthening its businesses in the United Kingdom. Huawei has a total budget ofĀ Ā£9.3 billion (~$13 billion) for investment in the UK. Huawei’s chairperson,Ā Sun Yafang, made this claim to the British Prime minister, Theresa May, while she was onĀ a trade mission in China.

Patent licensing fees paid by Huawei to BritishĀ chip manufacturerĀ ARM as well asĀ the ā€œglobal risk management and forex trading operationsā€Ā run by Huawei from London will both be covered by this deal. In 2012, Huawei made# a pledge toĀ procure Ā£1.3 billion in the UK from 2013-17, this current deal is different from the initial pledge and according to Reuters, Huawei will also haveĀ business deals inĀ telecoms infrastructure – It is currently a supplier to British telecom companies like Vodafone and BT.
