Huawei moving US research center to Canada

Source: ABC News

The founder of Huawei says the Chinese tech giant is moving its U.S. research center to Canada due to American sanctions on the company.

In an interview with Toronto’s Global and Mail newspaper, Ren Zhengfei said the move was necessary because Huawei would be blocked from interacting with U.S. employees.

“The research and development center will move from the United States, and Canada will be the center,” Ren said in a video excerpt of the interview on the Globe and Mail website. “According to the U.S. ban, we couldn’t communicate with, call, email or contact our own employees in the United States.”

Huawei, China’s first global tech brand, is scrambling to preserve its business in the face of possible loss of access to U.S. components, which threatens to damage its smartphone business.

1. They're not a good company.

Remember, they've been caught up in corporate espionage issues for a while now:

Of course, who's to say US companies are not doing the same thing.

2. Interesting considering we've had their CFO under arrest here for a year

She's fighting extradition to the States. I wonder if this is a bargaining ploy by the company to get her release.

3. Yes very interesting

Considering we are holding the CEO on behalf of US and China is very upset with Canada for us following international law. I blame Trump, putting us in this position. China is also holding two Canadian citizens on bogus charges and in retaliation for us holding the CEO.
