Just expired 3 months to allow transactions with Huawei, the US unexpectedly extended for 3 more months
- Tram Ho
The administration of President Donald Trump is preparing to grant an extension license, allowing US companies to continue cooperation with Huawei for another 3 months. Earlier, Reuters had reported an order for an extension of two weeks, but the deadline was extended up to 90 days.
After putting Huawei on the economic blacklist in May, the U.S. Department of Commerce still allowed Huawei to buy components and use software from U.S. companies for a period of three months, to reduce disruptions to the company. customers, many of them in rural America.
After the expiry, the US side has extended the extension for another 3 months and this license has just expired on last Friday. However, it seems that small carriers in the US have yet to find a way to replace Huawei equipment.
Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said US rural carriers are still dependent on Huawei’s 3G and 4G telecommunications devices. Therefore, the US side must continue to grant licenses to Huawei, in order to help these carriers operate without interruption.
The U.S. Department of Commerce is also considering whether to grant individual licenses to U.S. companies selling parts to Huawei, after receiving more than 200 requests to continue working with Huawei. The Chinese telecommunications giant is still a big customer for American companies. However, no final decision has been made yet.
