United States is again against the communications giant over concerns that the company presents a threat to national security. The matter is that Huawei positions itself for more business in the west.
The meeting is scheduled to take place between the US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, the executives from Huawei, and the representatives from its rival ZTE. The plan of the meeting is to scrutinize the strategy of expanding their businesses.
American lawmakers are concerned that either communication giant could pose a potential security risk in supplying communications equipment to the Chinese companies, especially taking into account the fears over the supposed Chinese government background of the privately owned Huawei. As such, the investigation will be finished in early October.
Huawei and ZTE, the 2nd and 4th largest telecommunications companies in the world respectively, are to be asked to provide extensive data about their internal corporate structures and all ties to the Chinese government.
Both corporations have long been viewed with suspicion by the United States, so the public hearing might go some way to breaking the ice and letting them to expand business in the US. In the meantime, when Huawei bought American company 3Leaf, this move was stonewalled following suspicion from the local government.
Nevertheless, the Chinese giant has been vocal about its innocence, claiming that all security concerns were allegations based only on allegations. At the same time, the company has had less trouble breaking into the British market. For instance, David Cameron "welcomed" the £1.5 billion investment in the country a few days ago. Last year, the corporation also employed a former British government security expert as head of its cyber security.

|other than it being chinese garbage, why is the united states using chinese companies and equipment for any of the infrastructure?|
anyone with any sense knows all the profits go to the military, and of course they are making back doors, and anything you can and can not imagine, that will be used against the united states when its needed.
if the republicans and their job creators would stop creating jobs in china, and stop thinking about profits and start thinking about their own country and people, and companies, the united states would be a whole lot better off and secure in the future.
its bad enough what walmart did to the country, but apple and other companies are treasonous too by only using the chinese to manufacture their products.
wake up america, stop letting the republicans lie to you and stop giving your money to the chinese, and for gods sake, remove china from the list of monee given to aid to developing countries.

|Ya, I suppose you could stop buying from China but then you would have to buy... oh wait, nope - you can't buy phones from anywhere else because we don't export the rare earths that you need to manufacture phones. Having a factory in the US won't help if you don't have the raw materials.|
