Huawei says it is open to digital 'supervision'

Chinese telecoms equipment giant Huawei said on July 20 that revenue surged 30 percent year-on-year in the first half helped Huawei says it could take 5 years to resolve hardware issues

In one of the strongest public remarks ever, a senior representative of China's tech company Huawei on Thursday night rebutted fear-mongering of the company.

Huawei's business has come under threat in recent months as an increasing number of governments express concern that its technology could be used by Chinese spies.

No evidence has been produced publicly and the firm has repeatedly denied the claims, but the allegations have led several Western countries to restrict Huawei's access to their markets.

In a letter to Norman Lamb MP, chair of the science and technology committee, Ryan Ding, an executive from the controversial Chinese technology company, pledged to spend £1.5 billion over five years to address security issues flagged last year.

The comments due to be delivered in a speech by Abraham Liu, Huawei's chief representative to European Union institutions, come as the company finds itself under fire over ties with the Chinese government and suspicion that Beijing could use its technology for spying, which the company denies.

It is a complicated process and will take at least three to five years to see tangible results. "By working closely with our European partners, we are creating a better future for all of us".

British Telecom (BT) has begun removing Huawei equipment from its existing 3G and 4G networks and will not use Huawei as it moves toward 5G although the British government has not issued a ban. However, the bottom line is Huawei also makes great products.

At present, the United States has launched an activity to convince European allies to refuse to use Huawei's 5G equipment, saying it has security risks. The measures will be finalized before the 5G auction, to be available for bidding companies, the report added.

Mr Ding also defended the company's reputation in the face of several United Kingdom allies restricting the use of Huawei equipment in crucial communications infrastructure.

The law mandates any organisation and citizen to support and assist national intelligence in their investigations and to keep information related to such investigations.

July's report identified what it called technical problems which limited security researchers' ability to check internal product codes and concerns about the security of third-party components from a US supplier.

So far, Huawei hasn't responded to Politico's report.
