Huawei reportedly under investigation by USA for stealing trade secrets

Huawei is the world's biggest producer of telecommunications equipment

Some Western countries have barred Huawei from their markets after us officials briefed allies that Huawei is at the beck and call of the Chinese state, warning that its network equipment may contain "back doors" that could open them up to cyber espionage. A bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced new legislation that would ban exports to companies caught violating USA sanctions laws.

Handelsblatt, citing government sources, said government officials were discussing setting security standards that Huawei could not achieve, effectively blocking its participation.

The newspaper said the DoJ was looking into allegations of theft of trade secrets from Huawei's United States business partners, including a T-Mobile robotic device used to test smartphones.

Huawei already faces bans of varying degrees in Japan, Australia, New Zealand and the US over fears that China's government could use its systems to spy on other countries.

At that time, Washington had announced an indictment against Chinese chipmaker Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co Ltd for stealing trade secrets from US semiconductor company Micron Technology relating to research and development of memory storage devices.

On Capitol Hill on Wednesday, US Senator Tom Cotton and US Representative Mike Gallagher, both Republicans, along with Senator Chris Van Hollen and Representative Ruben Gallego, both Democrats, introduced the bills that would require the president to ban the export of US components to any Chinese telecommunications company that breaches US sanctions or export control laws. The two companies were specifically mentioned because they were anxious that Huawei and ZTE's network switches were used to monitor the United States. Both have also been accused of failing to respect US sanctions on Iran.

During this relationship, Huawei employees utilized one of T-Mobile's robots called "Tappy" that was used for quality-control tests on smartphones.

"Oxford University decided on January 8 this year that it will not pursue new funding opportunities with Huawei Technologies Co Ltd or its related group companies at present".

It comes as the Trump administration is pressing China to take action on questions of technology theft or face additional trade tariffs. Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer, faces fraud charges in the United States over allegedly violating USA sanctions on Iran through a corporate subsidiary.

Handelsblatt quoted Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei as saying his company had never received a request from a government to transmit information in violation of any regulations. "As a private, employee-owned technology company, with a strong track record in R&D we believe partnership decisions should, like research, be evidence based".
