US -Huawei Fights
Huawei is one of the world’s top telecom supplier and the second highest Smartphone maker. Despite being a telecom giant, it has problems with the United States and some of its allies.
The problems are so serious that a top Huawei executive and its CEO’s daughter were arrested.
The major issue with Huawei has been concerns over its coziness with the Chinese government and fears that its equipment could be used to spy on other countries and companies. You should note that it is only an allegation nothing else. There has been no substantial evidence to prove this.
