Huawei President Ren Zhengfei said in an interview with People’s Daily that Huanwei will continue to buy American chips because market economy decides that enterprises will buy from each other.
Ren said Huawei has always bought half of its chips from America and half uses its own even if Huawei’s chips are cheaper. He said the purpose is to exchange and to keep up the same level.
But the current situation is that the American enterprises must get approval from Washington to sell it to Huawei. Once they got approval, Huawei will continue to buy. But right now there is no time to wait for the approval, so Huawei has to use their own, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t want to buy.
Ren blamed the media to blame American enterprises without discrimination from American politicians. It is American politicians who don’t want the American enterprises to sell chips to Huawei. But over the years, American enterprises have been very cooperative.
