Huawei and Britain – Impact of the British ban
Huawei was granted a limited role in January to build the U.K.’s new high-speed 5G networks. However, last week the U.K’s National Cyber Security Centre began a review to examine the impact new U.S. sanctions against Huawei could have on the country’s networks, officials said.
The U.S. restrictions on foreign semiconductor makers unveiled last month are aimed at limiting Huawei’s ability to use American technology, escalating a geopolitical battle between Washington and Beijing over industry development and security.
The sanctions “will definitely damage the global supply chain of the semiconductor industry, which lots of industries rely on,” said Huawei Vice President Victor Zhang told reporters on a conference call. Still it is early days, as it is too soon to draw a conclusion about the impact of the British ban.
