Ren Zhengfei, founder of Huawei, was interviewed by foreign media recently. He not only talked about Mengs detention, but also talked about Huaweis 5G business. Later, he proudly said, Its not that these countries banned Huaweis 5G, but that they begged Huawei to sell it this 5G.
Meng Wanzhou: Feeling indebted to his daughter
On December 1 last year, Meng was detained by Canadian authorities when he was transferring planes in Canada. On December 11, the local court announced that Ms. Meng Wanzhou was granted bail. Foreign media asked Ren Zhengfei what he thought of his daughter as a father.
As the father of Mengs late boat, I am very concerned about her. Ren Zhengfei emphasized that the matter of Mengs late boat has entered the judicial process, and there is no comment here. Ren expressed his gratitude to the judges and prosecutors in this case and to the Chinese government for safeguarding Mengs rights and interests as a Chinese citizen and providing her with consular protection. I believe Canada and the United States will come to a fair conclusion.
Ren Zhengfei confessed that he and his daughter were neither intimate nor intimate. The reason why I am not intimate is that I went to the army when my daughter was very young, and I dont stay with my children for 11 months every year. The second period is the era of entrepreneurship, struggling for survival. I spent 16 hours a day in the office. I couldnt take care of the family, so I didnt have any relatives with my three sons and daughters. From the fathers point of view, I think I owe them.
On Security: Huawei will never endanger any country
In this interview, many foreign media reporters focused on the safety of Huawei products. Some journalists questioned that the United States, Australia and other governments raised concerns about Huaweis product safety, and even all Chinese companies. How can Huawei protect the confidentiality of foreign customer information?
Ren Zhengfei said that over the past 30 years, Huawei has maintained a good safety record by serving more than 3 billion people in more than 170 countries. Secondly, Huawei is an independent business company, firmly standing on the side of customers in network security and privacy protection. Huawei will never harm any country or anyone. Thirdly, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China has clarified that there is no legal requirement for enterprises to install backdoors. Huawei Corporation and individuals have never received any such request.
He further said that he would rather close down the company than be driven by interests, infringe on the interests of customers and do things that should not be done.
Talk about 5G: In the future, these countries will ask Huawei to sell equipment.
Recently, some countries stopped using Huaweis equipment on the grounds of network security, and Polish officials said that NATO countries should issue a unified position against Huawei. Foreign media reporters said that this may mean restrictive measures, Huawei may have a large part of the market can not enter.
Ren Zhengfei responded that if we do not accept our opinions, only a few members of Parliament and officials, they do not represent the government regulations, we should actively communicate. If it goes up to government regulations, then we wont sell in this country. When these countries do not buy Huawei products, Huawei will shrink appropriately, as long as they can support their employees, there will be a future.
We spend $15 billion to $20 billion annually on R&D, ranking the top five in the world in terms of investment intensity. We have licensed 87,805 patents, and our capabilities in the field of communications are among the strongest in the world. Ren Zhengyi is not honest. There will be a contrast between countries that do not choose Huawei and those that choose Huawei in the future.
Ren Zhengfei explained that Huawei has made a lot of efforts on 5G. Now it has signed more than 30 5G contracts, shipped 25,000 base stations and 2,570 5G patents. As long as the product is well done, there will always be people who want to buy it; if the product is not good, no matter how to publicize it, no one else will buy it. Thats the way we really deal with this changing world and never change.
There are only a few manufacturers of 5G in the world, and not many manufacturers of microwave. Only Huawei can combine the 5G base station with the most advanced microwave technology in the world. Base stations can be transmitted back by microwave ultra-wideband without optical fibers, which is very economic and scientific and suitable for rural areas with sparse population. A large number of villas in the United States are scattered high-end rural areas, without optical fiber, how to watch 8K TV? If Huawei is not to be relied on, it will need a very high cost to achieve. It will not be the 5G banned by these countries, but the 5G sold to Huawei. Of course, Huawei is customer-centric and may still sell.
Talking about America: Calling for Win-win Cooperation
I want to say a word to the United States through the media, that is,win-win cooperation. Ren Zhengfei shouted to the United States that the high-tech world is increasingly impossible for a country or a company to complete a thing completely. The future expansion of the human information society is infinite. No market opportunity can be achieved by a company independently. Tens of millions of companies are needed to undertake it together. If we frighten some countries, companies and people at any time, who dare to invest in the United States, the superior environment created by taxation will not play a role.
The deadline for the extradition of Meng Wanzhou has not been mentioned in the United States.
In a twinkling of an eye, Meng has been in Canada for more than 40 days with electronic shackles. But as time went by, the United States, which had asked for arrest, had not yet submitted a request for the extradition of Meng Wanzhou. Canada is a little bitter. In response to media inquiries, Canadian Justice Department spokesman McLauder also said: The United States has not formally submitted extradition requests (including supporting documents). They must submit their application by January 30, 2019. After that, Canada has 30 days to decide whether to authorize the case to continue.
