    Huawaei moving research center from U.S. to Canada

    Huawei moving US research center to Canada

    BEIJING (AP) — The founder of Huawei says the Chinese tech giant is moving its U.S. research center to Canada (Toronto?) due to American sanctions on the company.

    In an interview with Toronto’s Global and Mail newspaper, Ren Zhengfei said the move was necessary because Huawei would be blocked from interacting with U.S. employees.

    Moving from Sillycon Valley to Toronto may involve investment in some thermal underwear.

    Some additional interesting info in the article cited above: Huawei moving US research center to Canada

    'In November, Huawei started selling a folding smartphone, the Mate X, made without U.S.-supplied processor chips or Google apps. The company also has unveiled its own smartphone operating system it says can replace Google’s Android if necessary.'

    Well, at least it will make arresting and detaining Huawei CFOs alleged to have committed fraud somewhat easier! No more waiting for extradition requests from the US Government perhaps?

    Cheers.

    But why when the only suggestion they pose a security risk is coming from the same agencies the current U.S. administration completely ignores vis-à-vis the same concerns raised about Russia?
