Huawei Wants Answers from U.S. Gov Over Blocked Bids
Huawei has officially requested that the U.S. government explain why the company was blocked from participating in a bid for a national first-responder network. Huawei was told that it can't participate due to national security concerns because of its alleged links to the Chinese military, but the company is not satisfied with this answer. "Notwithstanding that it is an ill-founded, ungrounded determination, it could have a chilling effect on our greater U.S. business activities and accountability needs to be defined appropriately," said Huawei spokesperson Bill Plummer. "Huawei has repeatedly and factually demonstrated its corporate independence. No one has ever factually demonstrated otherwise and playing Huawei as a pawn in some geopolitical game of chess is doing nothing more than threatening U.S. jobs, investment, competition and innovation." Huawei has set ambitious goals for itself, hoping to become a top five phone vendor in the U.S. within the next few years. The company wants a detailed answer on the "statutory authority and regulatory regime" under which the U.S. government's decision was made. The company has hit similar road blocks in the past.
