Biden's statement: It's time to end Huawei

By: Abraham Apr. 24,2023
According to the Wall Street Journal, the Biden administration has issued an ultimatum to speed up the implementation of new regulations and to continue to intensify the crackdown on Huawei in order to remove trade barriers between U.S. companies and companies like ZTE and Huawei, and to promote a more level playing field.

However, this is not just a matter of new regulations. In fact, since Trump took office, the U.S. crackdown on Chinese technology companies has become more and more pronounced, with Huawei as its representative. In addition to restricting its purchases in the United States, the U.S. has tried to exclude it from other markets. Only, under the Trump administration, these actions could still be seen as personal. However, under the Biden administration, these moves have been completely translated into official U.S. government policy toward Huawei.

Although the Biden administration's crackdown on Huawei does not originate from the air, its actions and preparations around Huawei are quite flawed as far as the political and economic levels are concerned. The most obvious question is whether the U.S. technological development and industrial interests will be affected by the crackdown on Huawei?

On this issue, it is clear that the U.S. has significant pitfalls. First, Huawei has always been one of the leaders in the global ICT market, with strong technology development strength and product competitiveness. Secondly, it is well known that there is a very close cooperation between the U.S. tech giants and Huawei. Especially in core areas such as 5G and AI, Huawei's technology and patents are almost irreplaceable. If the U.S. really wants to take tougher measures against Huawei, it is highly likely to hinder the U.S. development in these fields and even cause losses.

Moreover, as with other judicial and foreign policy issues, the U.S. government's attitude toward Huawei has been influenced by its domestic constituents. Arguably, on many of these issues, especially trade and manufacturing, U.S. politicians have seen attacks on Huawei as a "way to win over voters. In other words, the U.S. crackdown on Huawei is not just a legitimate action, but most likely an election strategy.

These issues have also led to speculation about whether the U.S. government will continue to take tougher action against Huawei in the coming years. Although the U.S. government has issued a tough slogan to "end Huawei," they will have to face more challenges and opposition if they continue to exert pressure on this issue.

As the world's largest telecom equipment manufacturer and ICT leader, Huawei has always carried a huge social responsibility. Huawei has always been committed to bringing the digital world to every person, every family, and every organization, and has contributed to many innovations in the global telecommunications sector. Huawei has also actively promoted the development of new technologies such as 5G and the Internet of Things, making important contributions to the prosperity of the global digital economy.

Therefore, if the U.S. were to take tougher measures on Huawei, both based on trade relations with domestic Internet companies and on the interests of the global ICT industry, it would have a negative impact. Indeed, the U.S. government can take any means to advance its policies, but if these initiatives ultimately lead to a decline in global technology, fragmentation of markets, and increased trade barriers, the consequences will be far greater than the U.S. itself can afford.

In short, Huawei is a very important topic for the United States. Huawei has always played multiple roles, both domestically and internationally, and the U.S. crackdown on Huawei is not just about the U.S. relationship with China. There are also competing technological levels, trade interests and other interests entangled in this. Therefore, the U.S. government should be more cautious when formulating its policy on Huawei, taking into account the interests and impacts of all parties, in order to truly achieve a fair and just competitive environment
