Arrest Shakes Huawei as Global Skepticism of Its Business Grows

By Raymond Zhong and Li Yuan
Dec. 6, 2018

It is one of China’s proudest corporate success stories, a colossus in cutting-edge technology that elbowed out Western rivals to become the biggest supplier of the hardware that connects our modern world.

Now, all around the globe, the walls are going up for Huawei.

The United States, which for years has considered the Chinese telecommunications giant a security threat, aimed a straight shot at the company’s leadership when it secured the arrest, in Canada, of Huawei’s chief financial officer.

But lately, Huawei’s setbacks have come on multiple fronts, from New Zealand and Australia to Britain and Canada. China sees the company as a pivotal driver of its ambitions for global technological leadership. Increasingly, much of the rest of the world sees it as a potential conduit for espionage and sabotage.

1. It is disappointing is that Canada is part of this arrest. What is interesting is the

report for the arrest was said because Huawei is in violation of the U.S trade sanctions against Iran, which is different than the NY Times story is conveying.

They play this game it will end up tit for tat, like the insane trae wars that are going on
