Huawei corporation was banned from tendering for work on the country’s national broadband network due to security fears. Recently the company has urged Australia to lift the spying ban.
Media reports confirmed Huawei is miffed that the United States and Australia have refused to let it apply for lucrative telecommunications work due to fears that it can install spying programs. Here Australia is following the direction of the United States, while the United Kingdom is quite happy with Huawei.
Actually, Huawei is not able to win business in the United States and some other markets because of the government security concerns. Back in 2011, the company was blocked from participating in the country’s $38 billion broadband network.
Huawei representative in Australia told a local parliamentary intelligence committee that he was summoned to the Attorney-General’s at short notice. Nevertheless, the statement never explained why the company didn’t get the contract, nor it was given a chance to respond to any concerns.
Huawei admitted it was worried that the new legislation would discriminate against the organizations from particular countries. The company called on the local government to adopt a principle of non-discrimination, saying that the businesses should have the opportunity to address their security concerns. However, there are also other pressures out there. For example, 6 months ago, China’s Ministry of Commerce has also voiced the concern about the decision of Australian authorities to ban Huawei from the broadband project, saying that such decision was at least very unfair.
China, in its turn, could also start introducing embargoes against Australian goods/services and particular companies. However, Huawei representative explained that the company is independent and doesn’t have any links to the government, so this can’t be happening. The Chinese authorities have no say in the running of Huawei, which is 100% owned by staff.
Last week, the Chinese giant testified before a United States House committee on Intelligence in Washington, DC, in a bid to appease them. We’ll see what will be the results of this move.

|Was this actually written in English or did you use translation software? Anyway, your a fool. It is illegal for any Chinese registered corporation to employ a person in management who is not a ranked Communist party member. The Aussies know this, the US knows this - you apparently don't. By default every Chinese corporation is government run. And so what? You will still buy from us in the end.|

|Seksor you are out of ignorance and prejudiced, Huawei is not a department of the Chinese Government and Chinese have laws and scientific corporate system. I think you should try to learn more about China in your own ways, not just believe what you were told without any thinking.|
|come on you think the jews want to share the wealth|
|their products stink, too many quality problems...|
plus, all chinese companies earnings contribute to the government and or military funding and the US finally did something right by not allowing them... its a surprise romney didn't have his republican or rich friends try to allow the chinese in...
australia is doing the right thing, and all other countries should follow suit and stop using chinese products wherever and whenever possible.
it only contributes to the military build-up.
remember, the soviet union fell because it went broke, but china doesn't have that problem because they have a slave labor workforce... and greedy companies, management, owners, republicans... want to make as much profit regardless if its a security or national security risk... look how much damage walmart has done in the states...
those job creators created jobs in china and ruined their own country and peoples lives and communities, all in the name of profit.
if the swiss can make profit giving high salaries, pensions, and eve for part timers, why can't american companies? the answer is, american companies can too, but there is more profit if they don't give that to their employees and just giv eit to management.
