Huawei's leader said that the US government's ban on the group is creating a "Berlin wall" of technology and a dangerous precedent for the global technology industry.
Speaking at a cyber security conference that took place at the University of Potsdam (Germany) on Thursday (May 23), Mr. Ken Hu, vice president of Huawei, said the restrictions imposed by the US government. with Huawei in recent days based on unfounded allegations that disrupted Huawei's business operations.

According to Mr. Ken Hu, the US government's actions with Huawei pose a dangerous precedent. It goes against the values of the international business community, severing the global supply chain and breaking the fair competition in the market.
Not only businesses, consumers will also be affected. In Europe, about three-quarters of smartphone users are phones based on Android platforms. Huawei accounts for about 20% of this market.
And not just for Huawei and the technology industry, Huawei's leader said that the same US government ban could happen to any other industry, field and company in the future. This is reminiscent of the historical Berlin wall event.
"I am honored to speak at the beautiful campus of the University of Potsdam. When I arrived early, I was told that we were in a historic place where the Berlin Wall (Berlin Wall) was erected. This reminds me of the fact that we don't want to see another wall and we don't want to experience another painful experience, "said Ken Hu.
Huawei representatives shared that the company "does not want to build a new commercial wall, as well as a new technology wall." The technology industry needs an integrated global ecosystem that can help businesses foster faster technological innovation and stronger economic growth.
After the US government banned US companies from doing business with Huawei, Chinese technology corporations were stopped by a number of technology companies to provide software and components. The two biggest shocks for Huawei are the fact that Google stopped licensing its services on Huawei devices and recently announced that ARM did not allow Chinese technology firms to use processor design. on new generation chip products. Besides, other major software and component suppliers such as Qualcomm, Intel and Microsoft also announced to stop cooperating with Huawei to comply with the US government's ban.
