Huawei finally gets a ray of hope as Trump hinted at a possible lifting of the ban as a part of trade negotiations with China. Trump has stated, “If we made a deal, I could imagine Huawei being possibly included in some form or some part of it.”

In the past also, Trump administration had used a similar ban-unban game on another Chinese company-ZTE to squeeze a better trade deal. This is plain and simple against a Laissez-faire economy. In a fair market economy, such a decision harms both US and Chinese companies.

US government and the companies fail to understand that such myopic moves will have a ripple effect. The political environment would force foreign companies to think twice before making any business ties moving forward.  Worst, it would repel them away and damage the crux of globalization.

The recent US decision to steamroll Huawei came after the US-China trade discussions went south. As a retaliation, Huawei was put in an Entity list which forced the American companies to break any business ties with Huawei. Google and Microsoft were amongst the few companies that followed this suite and suspended their relationship with the Shenzhen based brand.

Trump argues, “Huawei is something that is very dangerous, you look at what they’ve done from a security standpoint, a military standpoint. Very dangerous.” Huawei has time and again vehemently refuted these allegations. The real question is- Why would Trump lift the ban now if Huawei is a genuine threat?

Huawei accuses the US politicians are to be blamed for this bullying and ruining its reputation. Mr. Ren Zhengfie, Founder CEO, Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd shared that most of the US and European partners are still communicating closely with the brand. So, the company seems positive to come out of the turmoil unfazed.

As aforementioned, existing Huawei smartphone users would be receiving software updates for the foreseeable future. Huawei has the financial muscle to turn the tide and even come up with alternative solutions and preparations for current and future models.

Huawei’s founder Ren Zhengfei says, “We will certainly be able to continue serving our customers. Our mass production capacity is huge, and adding Huawei to the Entity List won’t have a huge impact on us. We are making progress in bidding worldwide,” ensuring a steady service and experience.

While the Nexus 6P brought Huawei into the limelight, the company has been a long time key partner and growth catalyst for the Android platform. The brand’s Mate and P series phones bleed innovation and drive the market to push limits. Ergo, looking at the macro level of things, technology should never be caught in such trade tussles. Otherwise, it’s the consumers who would be the biggest losers in the end.
