It’s clear that Huawei and ZTE have not invested enough in their Washington DC lobbying unit. The US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee has called upon America’s finest (telecom operators, that is) to refrain from doing business with Huawei and ZTE on grounds that these two companies pose a “security threat”. Exactly what is this “security threat”? According to House Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, American firms contemplating the purchase of Chinese equipment should worry about the theft of intellectual property, the privacy of their users and . . . the national security of the United States!
Note to Huawei and ZTE: It is an Election Year.
