Top U.S. Official Urges Associates To Reject “Deceitful” Huawei

At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, a top official from the U.S. Government made the case against Huawei. Mobile World Congress is the telecom sector’s largest trade show where the Chinese company has a huge presence. Robert Strayer, Ambassador, Cyber And International Communications, the U.S. State Department, notified reporters that Huawei’s 5G infrastructure puts the U.S. and its associates at the threat of Chinese spying. He called the firm deceitful and duplicitous.

Strayer proclaimed this week that the U.S. is requesting other governments along with the private sector to think about the danger posed by Huawei and other Chinese IT firms. U.S. officials fear that the Chinese Government might force Huawei to share data on citizens collected through its telecoms equipment on novel super-fast 5G networks. Strayer proclaimed that the Chinese law needs companies to support and help Beijing’s huge security apparatus, without any democratic checks and balance on access to or use of information.

On a similar note, Huawei came into the news as it disclosed that it is all set to pay employee shareholders with an almost 3% increase in cash dividends. These dividends may value almost billions of dollars, as per Reuters’ calculations as well as the firm sources. A novel shift is estimated to propel morale as the firm struggles a US-led drive against its telecom gear. The payout also seems to point out to revenue development and confidence the firm can survive the U.S. charges that its telecoms network equipment might allow spying by the Chinese Government, according to the analysts.

The firm is famous for its so-called “wolf culture” that requires high dedication levels from staff members in return for huge pay. It boasts that approximately 80,000 of its staff members own almost all of the firm’s shares, a scheme analyzed as distinctive for a company of its size.
