Huawei to U.S. Gov: Investigate Us
Huawei, the Chinese telecom vendor looking to make a push into the U.S. market, has asked the U.S. government to formally investigate the company's background and clear it of any misconceptions concerning ties to the Chinese government. Huawei has sought to make investments in the U.S., as well as acquisitions and sell its telecom equipment to U.S. companies. The government, however, has blocked several of Huawei's efforts over fears that it answers (at least partially and/or unofficially) to the Chinese government and Chinese military. In order to overcome this hurdle, Huawei is, in effect, asking the government to perform a detailed background check to show that the company is clean. "We sincerely hope that the United States government will carry out a formal investigation on any concerns it may have about Huawei," Ken Hu, the deputy chairman of Huawei and the chairman of Huawei USA, said.
