United State’s President Trump lifts Huawei trade ban after he announced ceasefire in news conference.
We all expected this to happen eventually but didn’t expect it to happen that fast. Earlier this year, Trump referred to Huawei as a “threat to national security” and ban United State companies from selling anything or service to the company. “Lifting ban of Huawei could be part of a trade deal with China”, reported by 9to5google.
“US companies can sell their equipment to Huawei. We’re talking about equipment where there’s no great national security problem with it,” the U.S. President said.
Another report from the Wall Street Journal suggests Chinese President Xi Jinping have a hand in lifting the Huawei trade ban, and it is an integral part of any trade agreement with the US.
Huawei is still present on the Entity List
For the time being, Huawei is for the time being present on the so-called “Entity List” of companies that the U.S. Department of Commerce stops from dealing with American entities. A formal decision has not been made yet, and the discussions between the U.S. and China are still ongoing.
Is Huawei back to Normal?
It depends on how quick the government of the United States will act to lift the ban on Huawei. The company could be back in business in maybe a few days. The ban went into effect in mid of May this year, and it affected not just Huawei but also the United States based Tech giants too.
And for owners of Huawei devices, it will be a relief because Huawei promised it would bring the latest version of Android “Q” to its high-end devices.
