According, Liu Kang, Huawei’s chief representative in the European Union, the company is selecting a site in Europe and preparing to build a factory to produce 5G equipment. In order to integrate more closely into Europe and to work hard to resist the pressure of the U.S. on EU countries, Huawei decided to establish a production base in Europe.
This production base will concentrate on 5G equipment for the European markets. Currently, Huawei is selecting the site for the factory, and there are already several target locations.
According to the European Union, its member state will allow the Chinese manufacturer on its 5G construction. However, it will not participate in its core 5G construction. The organization said that it could ban operators that pose security risks to key parts of their 5G infrastructure.
At the Huawei Spring Festival reception in Brussels, Liu Kang stated that “Huawei’s commitment to Europe is more important than ever.” He then said, “That’s why we decided to build a factory in Europe. Only then can we truly have 5G products made in Europe for the European market”.
Although the EU has made such a statement, its plan is very similar to the rules of the UK. To a certain extent, Huawei can participate in Europe’s 5G construction (EU member states). Former European Commission Vice President Vivian Redding, who attended the Huawei Spring Festival reception, also stated that ” Huawei will build 5G equipment in Europe to significantly increase European confidence in Huawei products. “
