Huawei Braces For US Sanctions

Huawei Technologies is asking suppliers to move some production to China as it braces for possible restrictions on access to US technology that could starve the Chinese group of components deemed to be vital to its business.

The move comes as US prosecutors announced criminal charges against Huawei over alleged bank fraud, US sanction breaches and stolen trade secrets.

Huawei now faces the prospect of President Donald Trump imposing a full-scale ban on the sale of critical semiconductors and other US-made components to Huawei.

Huawei has aimed to minimise the risk to its business by informing suppliers such as Taiwan’s ASE Technology and King Yuan Electronics, its top chip packaging and testing providers, that it wants to relocate most production to sites in mainland China.
