Huawei is going to launch a newspaper and internet campaign to remember 20 years of business in the UK.
The company issued an open letter to the public in which it said it is “as committed as ever” to provide “the best equipment” to 5G mobile and full-fiber broadband providers.
Victor Zhang, vice president of Huawei and head of its UK operations, said that the company aims to provide people facts through this campaign amid all the “noise”.
He said he expects the UK would take an “evidence and fact-based approach”. He also warned of economic issues if greater connectivity was delayed by the company’s exclusion.
He said, “We need to work closely to address the issue, but we need to take action to accelerate the broadband deployment,” “We don’t have time to delay this.”
Huawei’s local boss expects that the UK will act as per the nation’s interests.
The news has come out after a new security review that could urge the UK government to ban Huawei’s 5G network kit.
According to the international news agency, the decision has been taken after a report published in Daily Telegraph, which said London-headquartered bank HSBC fears it could face reprisals in China if the UK acts against Huawei. Sunday Times also reported that China’s representative to the UK had said to the business leaders that China saw the matter as “a litmus test of whether Britain is a true and faithful partner”.
