Huawei’s Dr. Hui Cao at EuroDIG: “5G a joint effort, Huawei part of Europe’s 5G ecosystem”

Brussels, 12 June 2020

“We are part of the supply chain in Europe. We are proud that we can help maintaining digital connectivity in Europe during this difficult period of the pandemic. 5G technology is the result of a coordinated, joint effort spanning Europe, America and Asia," underlined Dr. Hui Cao, Head of Strategy and Policy at the Huawei EU Brussels Office during his panel intervention at the 2020 edition of the European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG).

Dr. Hui Cao went on to stress that geopolitical tensions aimed at decoupling established global supply chains are dangerous for all industry players: “Huawei and a handful of other companies have jointly elaborated standards for 5G technology. Potentially, excluding a vendor on the basis of the country of origin might be illegal.”

During his panel intervention, Dr. Hui Cao reminded the audience that Huawei has a large presence in Europe, cooperating with 150 European universities, and running 23 R&D centres.
