Xu further expressed that Huawei is currently aiming to survive in harsh conditions and we are now in a process of survival. Under this process, different companies have different choices and a large number of companies will choose to give and lay off employees. On the other hand, Huawei has its own approach.

Huawei wants to survive all of the outcomes and challenges. Therefore, it may face many technical outages and problems that need to be resolved, which requires top talents to overcome the difficulties.
