Huawei to shift research to Canada

  • Huawei plans to shift research center to Canada from U.S. Globe and Mail

In this November 20, photo, people stand outside of a Huawei store at a shopping mall in Beijing.

The founder of Huawei says the Chinese tech giant is moving its USA research center to Canada due to American restrictions on its activities.

Huawei's centre for research and development "will be moved out of the United States and will be relocated to Canada", Ren told the Globe and Mail.

Huawei is one of the biggest global makers of smartphones and network gear for phone companies.

In November, the USA government granted a 90-day reprieve to companies in rural parts of the country that buy equipment from Huawei.

Canada, which Ren previously described as a suitable alternative to the US, is now home to his daughter, Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, whom Canada detained a year ago on fraud charges at the request of USA prosecutors.

Ren gave no details of how many jobs might be affected.

Among the critics of that response was Hu Xijin, the outspoken editor of the Communist Party tabloid Global Times, who said Huawei's treating the incident as purely a legal affair and its refusal to apologize ignored the need to respond to public sentiment. "According to the USA ban, we couldn't communicate, call, email or contact our own employees in the United States".

Ken Su, the national leader for PriceWaterhouseCoopers' China Business Network, says that while there has been some caution and a bit of slowdown in business ties between Canada and China - due to the continued detention of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou - he says the investment here could be viewed as part of a broader, overall trend. "It's obviously political interference from the US", Ren said.

Huawei has already added 300 employees in Canada this year, for a total of 1,200. It also now lists 86 job openings in Canada between Burnaby, B.C., Edmonton, Markham, Montreal, Ottawa, and Waterloo, Ont.

In July, Huawei announced it would bring high-speed wireless services to 70 communities in the Arctic and northern Quebec.

"There's Chinese companies looking to do investment here, and there's Canadian companies looking to do business in China".

Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei gestures as he attends a session of the World Economic Forum in January 2015, in Davos.

The blacklist was imposed by the Trump administration in May, with most USA companies banned from selling to the Chinese company. The company pleaded not guilty in both cases.

Chip manufacturers have been hard hit by the Huawei blacklist. The company also has unveiled its own smartphone operating system it says can replace Google's Android if necessary.
