US Government to Halt Tech Exports to Huawei

TECHNOLOGY

According to reports, the US government no longer approves licenses for American companies to export most goods to Huawei, the Chinese technology giant.

It comes at the same time that the Biden administration keeps enforcing stricter regulations regarding the export of US technology to China. Huawei has previously been accused by Washington of collaborating with the Chinese Communist Party and posing a threat to US national security.

The allegations have been repeatedly refuted by the company and the Chinese government. Some American businesses have been informed by the US Commerce Department that the department will no longer issue licenses for US technology exports to Huawei. According to the newspaper, Washington is moving toward a complete ban on the sale of US technology to the Chinese telecom equipment giant.

According to a spokesperson for the US Commerce Department, they collaborate closely with their partners in interagency export controls at the Departments of Energy, Defense, and State. They also regularly evaluate their policies and regulations and communicate with external stakeholders. The spokesperson went on to say that they do not discuss discussions or conversations with specific businesses. Huawei declined to respond to the rumors.
