But removing an e上海后花园e from the Entity List is a co

omplicated process, which requires a unanimous vote of the En

d-User Review Committee, which comprises the Department of Commerce as chair, and the depar上海后花园

tments of state, defense and energy and other agencies. Which means Huawei could remain on the list for some time.

上海后花园品茶微信The US may have relaxed restrictions on Huawei, but that alone is not enough for the Chinese company

to develop its overseas markets. So Huawei can continue to purchase chips and other tech上海后花园

products from US companies to make mobile phones but cannot sell those mobile phones in the US.

Also, the US’ decision to keep Huawei on the Entity List until the concl

上海后花园品茶微信usion of the Sino-US trade negotiations will lead to considerable uncertainty. And the US presi

dential election next year could complicate matters further, as the American public opinion about China,

and the attitudes of the Democratic and the Republican parties could influence the final outcome.上海后花园

The US has relaxed the restrictions on Huawei as a negotiation strategy w

ithout changing its China policy. Since the information and communication te

上海后花园品茶微信chnology sectors of the two countries are still intertwined thanks to economic globalizat

ion, Huawei and China’s high-tech industry have become bargaining chips in Sino-US trade negotiations.

Chinese companies should therefore make greater efforts to intensi上海后花园

fy research and development in technology, particularly in high-tech and

core technologies, so they can better tackle eventualities and ultimately become self-sufficient.
