The founder of Huawei Technology, Ren Zhengfei, was yesterday interviewed by CCTV on China’s education. In this interview, CCTV host, Dong Qian, said that the outside world is worried about Huawei’s life. You (referring to Ren Zhengfei) instead talked about education issues. It is a bit detached. Why?
Ren Zhengfei said, “The first point, we never thought we would die. We have already made 20,000 gold medals. The above inscription is Huawei is NOT DEAD. We don’t think we will die at all, why do we see death so much?… We will sort out our problems…victory will be ours.”
He added ”I care about education because it’s not just about Huawei, but about our country. If we don’t pay attention to education, we will actually return to poverty. Because this society will eventually go to artificial intelligence…in the future, we have hundreds of thousands of production lines that are completely automated. Therefore, our people’s cultural quality need to improve…”
Since the United State government added Huawei Technology to its entity list, it has been one bad news or another for Huawei. A couple of companies and associations have withdrawn their association from Huawei as a result of the ban. The likes of AMD, ARM, Google, Intel, Qualcomm, etc. have suspended cooperation with Huawei. Associations like Wi-Fi Alliance, JEDEC (Solid State Technology Association), SDA (SD Association) and PCIe standard also canceled Huawei’s membership. In addition, Huawei Mate 20 Pro has been delisted from the Android Q beta program.
