Huawei's recent exclusions from the 5G race in some European markets, including the British, French and Italian markets, are inevitably generating discontent and objections. In recent days, the CCCEU, or the Chinese Chamber of Commerce for the European Union, has expressed itself on the news, defining itself increasingly concerned by the increase in activities against the Chinese giant, historically accused by the United States of international espionage (without however having never presented solid evidence of any kind).
Instead of using technical criteria based on concrete evidence, some EU countries targeted technology suppliers outside the EU and even classified them as high risk entities. It is unacceptable to divide business in Europe into European and non-European groups according to the place of origin of the parent companies and to use it as a market access criterion.
The CCCEU statement (visible in full by following the SOURCE link at the bottom of the article) also underlines how Chinese cellular infrastructure providers, such as Huawei and ZTE, have had a positive impact on the EU economy, creating around 20,000 jobs. direct and up to 300,000 indirect jobs.
The message then goes on to broadly explain the potential of a solid technological partnership between China and the EU, but operators from the UK send a much more concrete message: representatives of companies such as Vodafone and BT say that if the government decides to further tighten the measures against Huawei, excluding it totally and completely from the national communication network, would lose billions of pounds and smartphones could remain without a network for whole days. Not only will the distribution of 5G be slowed down, but operators would be forced to divert their resources to replace the existing equipment.
