An inspiring transcript of Huawei’s CEO interview goes viral on Chinese internet
Huawei is in the middle of an international dispute which is taking a toll on the business performance and global expansion. The executive order issued by US President Donald Trump last week is clearly aimed at cutting the telecommunications company off from American suppliers, exacerbating a crackdown on the Chinese hi-tech economy which is heavily dependent on the American technology. An interview transcript of the CEO Ren Zhengfei, confirmed by Huawei’s official press, has been widely circulated on Chinese social media. Claiming that Huawei is ready for any outside problems, the post is upbeat, exuding company confidence and “positive energy”, expressing the belief of a win in the politically corrupted business fight. Ren also pointed out Huawei’s intimate business relationship with all American suppliers for all the time being, suggesting that his business partners in the US are working closely with Huawei on confronting the restriction by Trump’s administration, which is not likely to be lifted in a short term.
