Last weekend, US President Donald Trump did ease the trade blockade of Huawei , allowing US companies to sell their products to the Chinese giant. Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei commented on this event and made a very unexpected statement about the future of the corporation.
“Cancellation of sanctions is fair. We made no mistakes to punish us. The US just wants to destroy us, ”said Ren Zhenfei.
According to the head of Huawei, even in the case of a complete lifting of sanctions, he will continue to reduce the dependence of his business on American suppliers. This is the current strategy of the company. He noted that Huawei will need one or two years to adapt to the new working environment.
Ren Zhengfei said that Huawei should make a lot of efforts to solve its internal problems. After all, now has a chance to find an alternative to American products. If all sanctions are not lifted, the head of the company intends to hire an additional 6,000 employees, increasing their number from 188,000 to 194,000. Mostly they will be engineers for internal development.
