China Promises “all Necessary Measures” To Defend Chinese Companies

Recommended Posts

(edited)

China’s foreign minister on Friday promised “all necessary measures” to defend Chinese companies and citizens abroad amid legal clashes between tech giant Huawei and Washington. Recent legal action against Chinese companies and individuals is “deliberate political suppression,” said Wang Yi at a news conference. Wang was responding to a question about Beijing’s stance on Canada’s arrest of a Huawei Technologies Ltd. executive on U.S. criminal charges and the company’s lawsuit in an American court aimed at overturning restrictions on sales of its telecom equipment. “Recent actions against specific Chinese enterprises and individuals are not simply judicial cases, but deliberate political suppression,” said Wang. Beijing will take “all necessary measures to resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises and citizens,” he said. “We also support companies and individuals using legal weapons to protect their rights and interests and not to be silent lambs.”

"... silent lambs" - when you come to country and spying, how do you call that?

Huawei sales in January reached 6.82 million phones in China (not counting Honor brand phones sold 5.13 million) which is up 46% from January last year!! Whereas Apple suffered 28% decline in sales!

" Chinese tech giant Huawei has sued the U.S. government, arguing that legislation Congress passed last year restricting its business in the United States is “unconstitutional.”  The case, which analysts see more as a public relations move, is the latest in an intensifying effort by the telecommunications company to fight U.S. security concerns that Huawei argues are unfair and unfounded.
In its lawsuit, Huawei argues that Section 889 of the National Defense Authorization Act violates the constitutional principles of separation of powers and due process. By singling out the company and punishing it without a trial, the company also argues that the law violates the Constitution’s the bill of attainder clause."

What if I want to sue China government for human rights violation for allowing brutality towards its own citizens? In regimes it's not possible to do...

I thought the US government just refused to buy phones from Huawei for government employees?  They are still available at retail outlets in America?

I was just in Tokyo and the Huawei phones were on display at a retailer I visited (they are also on sale here in Thailand, but I haven't been to look).  All I can say is:  Samsung and Apple better watch out! 

You see, that's the problem with the theft of IP; Huawei virtually steals the IP out of both Samsung and Apple and leapfrogs ahead of the game, without the billion $$ R & D costs.  That's just the IP theft.

Now you add in the spy apps and add-ins contained in their chips, that Congress and the President BOTH AGREE that Huawei installs in every type of electronics they touch, and feed it all back to themselves AND direct-lines it all to the Chinese Government and Ministry of Defense.

Or, it could just be the U.S. government protecting both Samsung (Ally) and Apple (U.S. mega-company).  I tend to believe the government, but I also think it is a convenient side benefit if they can suppress Huawei and keep Samsung and Apple at the head of the pack.

Keep an eye on this argument between all these parties; it is at the core of the IP war (NO, the trade deficit and the tariffs that are being used to fight it, are NOT the main battle).
