Huawei Receives 90-Days License Extension From US Government


Earlier this year, the US Department of Commerce blacklisted the Chinese OEM Huawei to do business with the US firms. However, it has been reported that the Trump government is extending the licence for 90 more days to Huawei to continue business with US firms. Here are the details:

Huawei Receives 90-Days License Extension From US Government


The ban was announced on the grounds of national security. According to the rules, Huawei access to import components and Android OS were limited by the government. Now, the government has made an extension of 90 days which might help in minimizing the disruption of its customers. Most of the firms who are indulged in business with Huawei is operating from rural America.

"The Temporary General License extension will allow carriers to continue to service customers in some of the most remote areas of the United States who would otherwise be left in the dark," US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said.

However, the Chinese firm said that the extension will not impact the business of the company either way. Huawei said, "This decision does not change the fact that HUAWEI continues to be treated unfairly either."

Trump government has made another change and announced that the ban will be effective from February 16, 2020. "The Department will continue to rigorously monitor sensitive technology exports to ensure that our innovations are not harnessed by those who would threaten our national security," Ross said in a statement on Monday.

Earlier this month, it was reported that the Huawei CEO Ren Zhengfei said that he is not expecting the US to take the company out of the blacklist, and now it doesn't matter.

"They may as well keep us there forever because we'll be fine without them," Zhengfei said in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal.

The announcement for extension was made days after Zhengfei's interview with The Wall Street Journal. This might be a reason behind the extension. However, we can't say anything about the US decision.
