In a recent interview, the founder of Huawei, Ren Zhengfei, revealed that the company has opened over 90% of its production capacity. Recall that some weeks ago, there was a total lockdown in China which crippled a lot of businesses. However, as the coronavirus cases continue to reduce in China, businesses are now resuming. According to Ren Zhengfei, the company is synchronizing its 6G and 5G R & D.
Huawei has restored more than 90% of normal production, research, and development. During the Spring Festival, Huawei has more than 20,000 scientists, experts, and engineers working overtime. Ren Zhengfei said that he must keep up with the time, and work hard for the continuity of production because the United States may increase sanctions against Huawei.
Ren Zhengfei acknowledged that there are difficulties in supplying materials across countries and companies. The entire industry chain has an impact on Huawei, but it is not so big, it can still guarantee the supply.
On the issue of 5G and 6G, the reporter asked President Ren if Huawei is working on 6G. Ren Zhengfei said that Huawei has been doing 6G, synchronized with 5G. However, 6G is still in its infancy. It is still struggling with the theory and other aspects. According to Huawei’s founder, nothing concrete on 6G will arrive before the next ten years.
Huawei can not entirely expunge US chips from its supply chain
Ren Zhengfei once again talked about the US ban and Huawei’s supply chain. He believes that it is impossible for Huawei to completely remove the US chip from the supply chain. According to him, this is impossible because American companies must also survive. According to him, US companies, within the jurisdiction of the US Department of Commerce, apply to the Department of Commerce for a license, which can be provided after approval. The Ministry of Commerce has set a threshold, it must be controlled above the threshold, and it is still open below the threshold.
