New Delhi: Huawei Technologies, China’s top telecommunications equipment maker, said on Wednesday it is considering building a factory in India, after its imports to the country were slowed over government security concerns.
A Huawei spokesman in India said a facility could be set up soon if the company decided to go ahead with the plan, but did not provide further details.
The possibility of a new factory comes as Huawei’s hometown rival, ZTE Corp, another major exporter to India, said it was also considering building a factory.
Industry sources have said the Indian government is not approving equipment orders from Chinese vendors because of security concerns.
