Trump executive order could ban Chinese equipment-makers Huawei, ZT in US

Washington,
Feb 10. US President Donald Trump is preparing to sign an executive
order next week, banning American carriers from using equipment from Chinese
technology players,
the media reported on Sunday.

The decision
is expected to be announced ahead of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona
from February 25, the Android Police reported.

“Both the White House and Congress
have been trying to ban networking infrastructure from Chinese companies for
months,” the report said.

Chinese tech
giant Huawei has been in bad light after the US Justice Department last month
filed a host of criminal charges, including bank fraud, obstruction of justice
and theft of technology against the company and its detained Chief Financial
Officer Meng Wanzhou.

Apart from Huawei,
ZT
E has also been listed to be banned from being used by network operators
in the US.

The US has
long suspected and often accused the Chinese government of encouraging trade
secret theft as a way to build up its own industries which has reportedly
prompted the US administration to take such drastic measures.

“Government officials are mainly
targeting Huawei and ZTE’s network infrastructure business, so the sale of
phones and tablets to US consumers would likely not be affected,” the
report said.

Earlier in January, an Apple engineer of Chinese origin — Jizhong Chen — was found to have been attempting to leak confidential intellectual information about the company’s secret autonomous vehicle programme to a China-based autonomous vehicle company where he had applied for a job as well.
