According to the American House of Representatives’ Intelligence Committee, they must shut Huawei out of the domestic market due to potential Chinese state influence on the companies, which may pose a security threat.
The position the United States has taken is the opposite of that in the United Kingdom, where Huawei cooperates with the UK intelligence agencies. The panel leaders of the United States have carried out an 11-month investigation of both entities due to the fears that China might spy on them.
Tech companies Huawei and ZTE are looking forward to expanding in the US, but the American government is telling their citizens that they may pose an espionage threat. Local media reveal that Huawei is considering an IPO in order to try and overcome the suspicions of the United States. However, the company’s spokesperson claimed that there was no truth to the committee’s suggestions.
Huawei insists that baseless suggestions saying that the company is somehow vulnerable to cyber mischief don’t fit into current technical and commercial realities. As for ZTE, the company has released a copy of the letter it had sent to the committee, where it wrote it profoundly disagreed with the claim it might be controlled by the government. This tech company is listed in Hong Kong and such news caused its shares fall. ZTE is working with Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile, and if its partners start listening to politicians, both Chinese tech giants would face problems in the United States.
According to the panel’s draft report, both Huawei and ZTE failed to satisfy its requests for papers to allay the abovementioned concerns. The committee was asking for the detailed information about formal relationships of the companies with local authorities.
The report presented to the government says that American companies should look for another vendor if they respect intellectual property, clients’ privacy, and the national security of the country.
CBS News’ “60 Minutes” were considered to have received allegations from a number of industry observers and Huawei employees. They were suggesting that Huawei might be guilty of bribery, discrimination, and copyright violation. In respond, the committee referred these allegations to the Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security.

Funny considering most products that are made in China are from non China companies. Chinese workers but foreign (to China) corporations!

The Unied States is actually becomming the united states of china most things in the tecnology world are all made in China hong Kong vietnam pakistan etc even most of the shoes we wear sorry to have you shut you down like that
|lol..labour is cheap in china and have heard any one saying i'm going to china for job..|
Buying Chinese goods that are not governing network structures, databases and companies' network securities are fine. But when you start handing the keys to your house to a Chinese worker visiting while you go out for a night on the town, it will be too late to do anything by the time you realize that your whole foundation has been compromised.

|If you want Quality than you need to produce Quality. There is this thing called self pride. How many people can say they went home tonight knowing they did a good job? Have you ever been fired from a job for doing too good of a job? I have. Was told the clients would come to expect it and I refused to lower my standards. Maybe we need to raise our standards.......||
