U.S. Budget Chief Seeks requested that the Huawei ban be postponed for two years

2 min read

Earlier, the US Department of Commerce listed Huawei as a list of regulated entities. After the restrictions, US companies were not allowed to cooperate with Huawei. The potential impact is that companies that already use Huawei products must also gradually strip Huawei, but they still need to rely on Huawei to provide security updates before divesting. Obviously, even if the US government provides Huawei with a three-month buffer period, it will not help. American companies don’t believe that this three-month is far from a successful transition.

The US agency director responsible for management and budget has sent a letter to the US vice president and members of Congress to delay the ban on Huawei for two years. The acting director said that many US companies and institutions have begun to worry about the potential impact of the Huawei ban and may affect the operation of the company. Some organizations said that the divestiture of all Huawei products makes it difficult for these organizations to operate normally in a short period of time, so it must be delayed to achieve a normal transition. To this end, these companies and institutions contacted the budget agent for assistance, so the Acting Director sent a letter requesting the US government to extend the ban for two years.

At the same time, Huawei also invited anyone to check the so-called spyware in the company’s products, because the fact is that Huawei’s products do not have these security problems. Of course, until now, the US government has always used a safe excuse to suppress Huawei, but the US government has not produced any reliable evidence to show this.
