Ren Zhengfe said that the US government's 90-day extension "doesn't mean much", adding that the company was ready to deal with the ban. "We are very grateful to the US companies. They have made a lot of contributions to us. Many of our consultants are from American companies such as IBM.
"We can make chips as good as those made by US companies, but it does not mean that we will not buy chips from them," Ren added.
He said the company will not exclude US chips. "Instead, we should grow together. But if there is a supply shortage, we have a backup. In the "peace period", half of our chips are from the US companies and half from Huawei. We cannot be isolated from the world."
"We sacrifice ourselves and families in the pursuit of a dream to stand on top of the world, which would clash with (the) U.S. sooner or later," Ren said.谈5G：欧洲跟我们沟通很密切
Ren also highlighted that Huawei's 5G plan will not be affected by the US ban. "Others will definitely not be able to catch up with Huawei in 5G technologies for two or three years," he said.
Ren said Europe maintains close communications with Huawei. For instance, 5G capacity is 20 times that of 4G, and its power consumption 10 times less. "We also use materials that will not corrode for decades, and these characteristics are very suitable for Europe.
