Unless there is conclusive proof, the US-led attack on Chinese telecom giant Huawei Technologies smacks of commercial nationalism
Over the past few days, the global media has been fascinated by the goings on in the “secretive" Chinese telecom giant, Huawei Technologies. Countries like the US, Japan, Australia and New Zealand have already banned Huawei’s switches and routers. These bans are driven by national security concerns that these network infrastructure products could be hijacked or manipulated by foreign governments and spies. Of course, fuelling these fears is Huawei’s perceived closeness to the Chinese government, as well as its opaque shareholding.
