Huawei looks to win back faith of United States

SHENZHEN, China – Chinese tech giant Huawei said Monday that it hoped to “solve the challenges and problems” it has in the United States after Washington labelled it a security threat last year.

CEO Guo Ping said the firm posed no risk to the United States, which in October said it and another Chinese telecoms firm, ZTE Corp., should be barred from contracts and acquisitions, adding it “cannot be trusted” to be free of influence from Beijing.

“Since we have never sold key equipment into the United States networks, there is no possibility for Huawei to pose a security threat to the United States,” Guo told a news conference.

“There has never been any incident on our products threatening the cyber security of networks,” he said, adding that Huawei products are used in more than 140 countries.

“I believe one day we could potentially solve the challenges and problems in the US,” he said, adding that this could be achieved with “the spirit of sincerity, openness and transparency”.

The United States’ distrust of Huawei stems from what is seen as an increasingly assertive China that is pouring money into building up its military and, US defence officials have warned, its ability to potentially use high-tech means to disrupt US communications or information systems.

Huawei, founded by a People’s Liberation Army veteran in 1987, has denied any ties with the Chinese government and called the October congressional report “an exercise in China-bashing”.

Guo was speaking after Huawei released annual earnings report, which showed net profit rose 32 percent to 15.4 billion yuan ($2.5 billion) in 2012, while revenue grew eight percent to 220.2 billion yuan.

It also said it expects compound annual growth in revenue of 10 percent over the next five years.

Huawei saw a jump of 7.2 percent in revenues in Asia-Pacific excluding China, a 4.3 percent increase in the Americas and a growth of 6.1 percent in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

China remained the company’s biggest market, where it saw growth in revenue of 12.2 percent to 73.6 billion yuan.

    Nobody trusts China. Never.

    Maraming pera ang China and its investment sa world economy is so enormous na pati ang US of A want’s a big share of pie dahil sa inaanay na economy nito. Well, galit layo sa intsik dahil sa disputed islets but simply we played double cross in our business dealings with the them starting with the controversial NBN-ZTE and North Rail Project. GMA started and abolished it after was found out na may scam involved sa project. May yumaman sa commission at marami din ang nagalit dahil natalo sa bidding. Noy went to China to strengthen the ties but it did not work dahil mahina yata ang trade and foreign relation nang Pinas na pabor sa mga amerikano. Well, in my case, I will only have to enjoy the Chinese and American products so walang boycott. Sarap kaya nang Chowking Lauriat at siopao na bola-bola at ayos ang American brand na Nike, North Face, IPod, Mac at Levis Jeans na made in China. Sarap din mag malling sa SM Mall of Asia kahit walang bibilhin at palamig lang sa libring aircon he he he.
