At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Huawei’s founder, Ren Zhengfei, said that technology is good and we do not need to panic about artificial intelligence. Regarding what will happen to Huawei after the US blacklisting, he said the company running smoothly. According to him, Huawei was originally a pro-American company. Most of Huawei’s management was so successful because it learned from the US.
“From starting a business to now employing dozens of American consulting companies to teach Huawei to manage, the US should be proud that the export of American culture has brought development to Huawei.” Ren Zhengfei said.
Therefore, Ren Zhengfei believes that the US does not have to worry too much about Huawei’s growth. The list of U.S. entities in 2019 will not have a big impact on Huawei’s crackdown. He believes that the US will not be as strong technologically in 2020. However, the US ban will still have a small impact on Huawei. “With last year’s experience and team exercises, we are more confident and there will be no problems.”
Does the US blacklisting Huawei mean that the world will split into polarization in the future? Ren Zhengfei believes that there will be no polarization because science is truth and truth is only one. But technological inventions are diversified, and technological progress is conducive to social progress.
Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, has been at loggerheads with the US on multiple issues. The US has always told its allies to desist from Huawei’s 5G. It believes that Huawei 5G is not safe and has backdoors. However, some countries including Germany are not very keen to ban Huawei. Some months ago, the German government said that its 5G construction will not exclude specific suppliers. This means that Huawei is free to participate. Even the European Union will allow Huawei to participate in its peripheral 5G construction.
