The confrontation between China and the United States is at one of the most crucial periods in current history, and this, naturally, includes technology. We must go back to the second half of 2018, when Huawei's situation in North America worsened enormously.
Trump, the country's then president, prohibited Huawei's equipment and technology in government services and institutions. It was only the tip of the iceberg of a conflict that would culminate in 2019 with the removal of Google apps from Huawei devices.
After almost three long discussions, some of this might come to light this year. But beware, not only for Huawei, but also for the other Chinese technology companies that, at the time, were vetoed by the White House. Since then, Huawei has been unable to sell its products in the United States, which in practice has resulted in a huge economic loss in a large and important market like the United States.
Does the US uphold Huawei's veto? Not much less, but at least it is more permissive to allow certain adjustments and the elimination of some of these vetoes, according to the US Industry Office, which makes a public statement that they are considering "participating fully in international standards organizations, particularly where critical standards, but sometimes invisible, they establish, have significant commercial and national security implications."
Huawei will continue to decline to operate in the United States as it did freely before 2019, but some restrictions will be relaxed. We will have to wait to see whether or not other Chinese firms will be able to return to Huawei mobiles. Despite the US's veto, the company rose its profits by 76 percent in 2021, bringing his total revenue to 17.8 billion dollars.
Despite the fact that they officially try to distance themselves from it, they continue to look suspiciously at Huawei, a very close competitor of the Chinese government. They believe that the veto against the company helps the country in terms of cybersecurity and espionage, but also helps the United States in its struggle for global technological dominance. From the Asian technology firm they hope to be able to collaborate with Google again in the near future.
