The Improbable Rise of Huawei: Foreign Policy

Huawei emerged on the world stage as a tech-savvy company in 2009 after replacing Norway’s entire mobile phone grid. In the ensuing decade, Huawei solidified its place as a global tech magnate and now stands poised as leader in the 5G network race that could dominate 21st century technologies like artificial intelligence. A combination of factors including governmental support, low cost and missteps from western rivals contributed to company’s meteoric rise. As Huawei dominates the global telecommunications market, the United States faces the danger of getting bounced from its preeminent position that allowed the country to gather intelligence on adversaries. Mistrust in the US telecommunications industry spread after whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed US intelligence interests coerced US companies into helping out, and the White House now struggles to convince allies to avoid Huawei technologies. – YaleGlobal
