 Investigation by the US Department of justice, HUAWEI employees: no evidence, no impact.


When China and the United States released the signal to reopen the negotiations, in April 25th Beijing time, the United States Ministry of justice was investigating whether the U. S. Department of justice was investigating whether the Chinese communications giant HUAWEI violated the US trade sanctions against Iran, but it was not clear to what extent the Ministry of justice was progressing and being investigated. What is the specific charge? A person close to the Chinese side made an exclusive confirmation of the news on the 25 day of the first financial reporter, but he said the matter was not related to the escalation of the previous trade disputes between China and the United States, but it was still a case, but it had an impact on the overall response of the Chinese side and should be taken into account in the future. HUAWEIs responsible person later commented exclusively on the first financial journalist, saying that it had little impact. A HUAWEI employee further explained to the first financial reporter, no evidence, little impact. The time and content of the US release of the news are rather subtle. In April 17th, the US Ministry of Commerce announced that the US government banned American enterprises from selling sensitive components to ZTE for 7 years because ZTE had made false statements to American officials. Later, HUAWEI said at the newly concluded annual analyst summit that the US market is no longer part of its global strategy and is no longer interested in the US market. HUAWEI in the United States has been hindered by the escalation A ZTE responsible person to the first financial reporter commented that the United States has added a card, which is not a single company level to solve the problem, to see the national level of the solution. On the second day of the US ban on resurgence, the FCC also voted against purchasing federal funds to specific companies. After nearly 20 days of brewing, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted in April 17th, with a 5 - to 0 vote, to ban federal funds from buying products and services to companies identified as risks to us national security. But before the FCCs second vote, the ban will not be the final result. Even so, FCC has already said in a previous draft that Congressional scrutiny shows that HUAWEI and others may pose a security threat. A week earlier, HUAWEI sacked 5 US employees, including Plummer, chief liaison officer in the US. (WilliamPlummer) Asked at the HUAWEI analyst conference in April 17th, when asked about the trade war between China and the United States, Xu Zhijun, the chairman, said, no matter what difficulties you have, focus on doing things well so that we can survive and develop better. In early 2018, the United States gradually increased all the channels to restrict the sale of HUAWEI phones in the US, including operators and retailers. At the beginning of the new year, the first day of the international consumer electronics show in Las Vegas, Las Vegas, was news that the second largest mobile operator in the United States was likely to give up the HUAWEI Mate10Pro cell phone because of the pressure from Congress. Following that, Verizon, the largest radio company in the United States, suffered similar pressure and eventually gave up the HUAWEI smartphone. In March, best buy, the largest electronics retailer in the United States, suspended HUAWEI products. An unnamed U.S. insider told first financial reporters that a series of measures in the United States this year are actually limiting the market share of these brands in the United States. Whether it is to obstruct cooperation between products and operators, or to propose measures, is to restrict the sale of products within a controllable and narrow scope. The former HUAWEI employee told the first financial reporter that HUAWEI had tried to break through the US market for many years, and it did not achieve much results. In March 27th, FCC chairman FCC (AjitPai) announced that FCC had voted in April 17th to prevent us cell phone operators from using federal funds to buy HUAWEI or ZTEs products or services. According to the proposal, all US operators will be banned from using the $8 billion 500 million general service fund to buy equipment or services for any company that poses a security threat to the national security of the United States. The fund charges fees from personal telephone customers to improve telecommunications services in low-income groups, rural areas, backward educational areas and high cost areas. Although Pais statement only refers indirectly to HUAWEI and ZTE, senior FCC officials have confirmed that the two companies are explicitly involved in the proposal. Hinders out of fear? Why such a case is thrown again at this time is not unrelated to the doubts of HUAWEI and other enterprises in the leading position in the 5G field. Trump signed the memorandum in the early morning of March 23rd, announcing that it would impose tariffs on Chinese imports, restrict Sino US investment and mergers and acquisitions, and resort to the dispute settlement mechanism of the World Trade Organization (WTO). The scale of Chinese goods involved in tax collection can reach 60 billion US dollars. Then, China and the United States began to play a multi round game. The report of the US China 301 survey reported that semiconductors are the foundation of the US technology leading position and play a key role in the many competitive economic sectors of the United States, and the strong domestic IC industry is crucial to the national security of the United States. In recent decades, the Chinese government has repeatedly stressed the importance of developing the local IC industry and challenged the leading position of the United States in this field. In the late March 12th, global semiconductor ranked the top ten Broadcom for a $142 billion hostile takeover of the top three Qualcomm Corp (Qualcomm), eventually terminated by Trump on the grounds of national security. In March 5th, CFIUS expressed this concern in a letter to Broadcom and Qualcomm lawyers. The long term competitiveness of Qualcomm and the decline in standard setting capacity will seriously affect the national security of the United States. Most importantly, the decline of Qualcomm will expand Chinas influence in the 5G standard setting. The letter said, Chinese companies, including HUAWEI, are already expanding the influence of 5G standards. For example, HUAWEI has increased R & D investment and has 10% of 5G core patents. Interestingly, the US Qualcomm Corp, the leader of Trumps strong protection of 5G, is also facing challenges from Chinese regulators. The latest news shows that Qualcomm will lay off 1231 people in Santiago since June. After the U. S. commerce department issued a ban on ZTE, the Ministry of Commerce of China, one year Thursday, first disclosed substantial progress in the anti trust review of the Qualcomm (NXP) in the US Qualcomm Corp. Over the past few years, this is the second time that Qualcomm has faced antitrust regulation in China. It is also the last hurdle for the transaction to face in the world. Qualcomms acquisition of NXP needs to be approved by 9 countries and regions in the world. In January 18th this year, Gao said that the deal was approved by South Korea and the European Union. This means that only the Chinese anti trust agencies have not made a decision. At the summit of the Ministry of Commerce, a spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce said, for Qualcomms Remedies, the preliminary feedback from the market tests conducted by the investigation agency said high Qualcomm was difficult to solve the problem of market competition. In April 16th, Qualcomm applied for withdrawal of the declaration and has declared it again. We will continue to do the antitrust review of the transaction in an open, fair and impartial manner according to the provisions of the anti-monopoly law. At a Sino US bilateral investment communication meeting on the 19 day, Orlins (StephenA.Orlins), President of the National Committee for the United States and China relations, told the first financial reporter that he and Qualcomm had passed the case for a long time and were very worried about the impact of the two events. Orlins said that if mergers and acquisitions could not be passed, HUAWEI would be the beneficiary, but it would affect the investment situation of Chinese enterprises in the US. The US Department of justice itself may soon experience a shuffle of personnel. Since taking office, Trump has already had several rounds of confrontation with the judiciary. A few days ago, the U. S. Minister of justice Sessi (JeffSessions) recently told the White House that if the president dismissed his deputy, Rosenstein, he might have to go. Rosenstein is responsible for overseeing Russias charge of interfering in the 2016 us major investigation. In March 14th this year, there were media reports that Trump planned to dismiss Sessi. This will make the special prosecutor Mullers Tong Russian gate investigation complicated. The most likely substitute is EPA, director of Environmental Protection Agency (ScottPruitt). Former U. S. Secretary of state Tillerson learned from tweet that he was fired by Trump. Former White House chief strategist Bannon and others were removed from the White House, which is said to be the next goal of Trumps personnel change. The two men had already clash. At the end of February, Trump launched an attack on attorney general Sessi for a survey involving presidential election surveillance. In response to Trumps Twitter, Sessi said that the Ministry of justice had started a normal procedure to ensure that complaints against the Department would be dealt with adequately and impartially when necessary. As long as I am the Minister of justice, I will continue to perform my duties, and this department will continue to operate fairly and fairly according to the law and the constitution, he said. In January last year, the acting Attorney General of the United States was dismissed by Trump after questioning the legality of the immigration ban issued by President Trump.
