- Tram Ho
Meng Wanzhou, CFO of Huawei, was allegedly a victim of a trade war between the U.S. and China when arrested in Canada last year at the request of the United States.
However, Huawei’s founder and father, Nham Chinh Phi, thinks that her daughter should be proud of the hardships she has experienced over the past year.
” It should be proud to be caught in this case. In the battle between the two powers, it became an important chess piece. ”
Meng was arrested in Canada at the request of the United States a year ago. She is still detained in her home in Vancouver and is waiting to hear whether the verdict could be extradited to the US from the court. She and Huawei face several crimes – including fraud, stealing trade secrets and ignoring US sanctions on Iran.
Huawei is the world’s largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer and a leading smartphone brand that has become the focus of a trade war. Washington says Huawei creates national security risks and prohibits its businesses from doing business with Huawei. The company denies any allegations.
Earlier this year, Huawei was added to the U.S. commercial blacklist. Washington prohibits companies like Google and Intel from doing business with Huawei unless they have a government license. A few companies like Microsoft received a limited license last week.
Nham Chinh Phi is currently fighting to ensure the survival of the company. He often likens Huawei to a bullet-proof plane and their employees are like engineers trying to fix those holes. At the company’s headquarters in Shenzhen, there was a black-and-white plate on the wall with a picture of a World War II plane being hit by bullets but still flying – reminding employees of the fighting spirit.
On her part, Nham Chinh Phi admitted that she was “suffering” but that would help her become stronger.
“Difficult experiences are good for him and for the future. My child is like a tiny ant sandwiched between the powers of two powers.”
Ms. Manh is currently spending time painting and tutoring. Nham revealed that Meng’s mother and husband often go to Canada to stay with her.
The 75-year-old leader said the incident also made him closer to his daughter. Although he did not have a clear schedule, he said he often talked to his children more than before and he also sent jokes to her.
“In the past, he didn’t even call me for a year. He didn’t bother to ask me how I was or sent me a message. Now, the relationship between father and son is getting closer.”
However, talking about Meng’s future at Huawei, one thing is for sure: she will not be promoted.
“A situation like this will greatly affect a person’s determination and personality. However, when I return to Huawei, it does not mean that my daughter will be held a higher responsibility,” said Mr. Nham. .
As a CFO, Ms. Meng can handle financial problems but does not have the capacity to handle other aspects of her business because she has no background in technology and does not have the necessary conditions to become leaders.
“If the business is led by someone who doesn’t have a strategic sensitivity, the company will gradually lose its competitive edge. That’s why when my daughter comes back, she will just continue to do so,” she said. what we are doing, “Mr. Nham shared with CNN.
