Huawei, besieged by Western countries, has responded strongly in recent days. After Huawei New Zealand CEO Fan Yan published his signature article in New Zealand Herald last week (14), Huawei Chairman-in-Office Hu Houkun continued to speak with facts at the 18 th international media press conference and named the United States:
In the United States, Huaweis equipment use is close to zero. What proof is Huaweis equipment unsafe?
Observers noted that this is also the first time that Huawei held a press conference by the companys top management after the Meng Late Boat Incident.
Hu Houkuntu from Japan
According to the news of Nikkei Chinese Network on the 20th, Hu Houkun, Chairman-in-Office of Huawei, held an international media news conference in Huaweis Dongguan Park on the 18th. Huaben invited 13 European and American media such as New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Associated Press, Agence France Presse, Bloomberg and Japans Japan Economic News and Koreas Central Daily to answer the medias doubts.
Earlier, there was constant news that many countries have refused to use Hua5G equipment. In response, Hu Houkun said, Despite some market efforts to create fear of Huawei and use politics to intervene in industry growth, we are proud to say that our customers still trust us. He also said that when it comes to security charges, it is better to let the facts speak. The fact is that Huaweis safety record is innocent.
Huawei has won more than 25 commercial contracts for 5G, slightly higher than the 22 announced in November, he said.
At the same time, Hua5G base station shipments have exceeded 10,000. Hu Houkun said that Huaweis total revenue is expected to exceed $100 billion this year. This will be a major milestone in our companys history. Huaweis earnings for 2017 showed that its revenue for that year was 92.549 billion US dollars.
A reporter asked: The U.S. government regards Huawei as a risk. What do you think?
Hu Houkun answered, Hundreds of Huawei operators over the past 30 years have proved that Huawei has never had a serious safety accident. In the United States, Huaweis equipment use is close to zero. How can we prove that Huaweis equipment is unsafe?
He also said that the United States is one of the largest telecommunications markets, Huawei can not be indifferent, but Huaweis business in the United States is currently difficult to promote. We pay attention to the progress of infrastructure in the United States. In fact, the market in the United States is seriously undercompetitive. If Huawei is allowed to participate in the market competition, the cost of wireless infrastructure will be saved by 20 billion dollars.
Hu Houkun once served as the chairman of Huawei in the United States. He is currently vice chairman and rotating chairman of Huawei. He plans to work for Huawei.
Hu Houkun said Huawei will invest $2 billion in a special budget to improve its software engineering capabilities in five years, so that products can better face the more complex network security environment in the future.
Huawei will continue to strengthen communication and collaboration with governments around the world and will be more localized. Hu Houkun cites Huawei as an example. In the past ten years, Huawei has set up network security centers in Britain and Canada. Last month, Huawei opened its network security laboratory in Germany. The next plan is to have such centers in Brussels in the first quarter of next year and in other parts of the world in the future.
Some journalists associate Huaweis current experience with the ZTE incident in April this year: If Huawei was blocked by the United States like ZTE all technology, then ZTE could hardly operate, then the same thing happened to Huawei, can it protect itself from harm?
Hu Houkun believes that the ICT industry is highly dependent on the global supply chain, and Huawei is no exception. Huawei now works with more than 13,000 suppliers from the United States, Japan, Europe and, of course, many other parts of the world. This year, we have purchased $70 billion. Huaweis technological innovation achievements today are the results of Huaweis own efforts, on the other hand, the global industrial chain, and the joint efforts of more than 10,000 suppliers. If there is any abnormal interruption in the industrial chain, it will have a great impact on the development of the entire industrial chain, even the global economy.
There were also journalists who questioned the Meng Wanzhou Incident. Hu Houkun answered: The case has entered the judicial process, so there is no evaluation here, hoping to get a fair result through the law.
Watcher. com noted that Huawei has frequently responded strongly in the past month to the blockade of Huawei in many Western countries.
In an interview with CNBC News on November 30, Huawei Chairman Xu Zhijun said, As a leader in the 5G field, if Huawei can not provide 5G services to American consumers, if the United States continues to prevent foreign companies from participating, the U.S. market will lose competitiveness. I dont know how the United States will become No.1 in the 5G era.
Then on December 14, Huawei New Zealand CEO Fan Yan published a signed article in the New Zealand Herald, pointing out that the New Zealand government refused to explain the ban to Huawei. Huawei has the right to participate in fair competition, regardless of technology or reputation. Huawei should be treated better.
On the 18th, Hu Houkun, chairman of Huaweis rotating board, made a statement, which was hailed by Reference News as a part of the Western countries with power to face. The article commented: If you come or not, Im here, not sad or unhappy.
