Update:

Responding to the SAIC investors in the shareholder meeting on July 1st, the president made this statement. He further explains, Huawei certainly provides overall smart car technology and holds the ability to make anyone dependent on the company.

As for SAIC, if we enter any corporation with Huawei, it will become one of the subsidiaries of the technology provider. It’s unacceptable for SAIC as we don’t want to do business under others’ shadows.

Speaking of Huawei, the company has repeatedly denied manufacturing cars and making any investment in car companies. Meanwhile, Huawei is focusing on providing high-end smart car technology and continue working on this.

We have seen the power of Huawei’s smart car technology in ArcFox Alpha S Series, SERES Huawei Smart Selection SF5 model, and GAC Trumpchi M6 Pro smart Car. Huawei is planning to dominate the automotive industry even without entering the manufacturing market.

This isn’t a simple welcome, it was made heroic by the Airport’s tower management and announced on the radio a message for Ms. Meng:

“The motherland will always be your strongest support. Ms. Meng Wanzhou welcomes you back!”

This is the first time when Huawei CFO landed in China since her arrest at Vancouver Airport in Canada. A Chinese statement media reported that Meng Wanzhou will have also to take pandemic prevention requirements and participate in a 14+7 day quarantine.

China’s foreign ministry statement:

“Facts have already fully proved that this is an incident of political persecution against Chinese citizens, with the purpose of suppressing China’s high-tech enterprises. The accusation of Ms. Meng Wanzhou’s so-called “fraud” is purely fabricated. The actions of the United States and Canada are typical arbitrary detentions.” said China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying.

Background story:

On December 1, 2028, Canadian police detained Huawei CFO while she was transiting at an airport in Vancouver, Canada. Subsequently, the Canadian Ministry of Justice held a press conference to announce the news of Meng Wanzhou’s arrest.

In March 2019, Canada approved Meng Wanzhou’s extradition order to the United States. Since then, Huawei has sued the Canadian government for the arrest of Meng Wanzhou.

On May 27, 2020, the Supreme Court of British Columbia ruled that the Meng Wanzhou case met the double criminality principle of extradition requirements and decided not to release.

Huawei Kirin

At Huawei Connect 2021, Eric Xu, Rotating Chairman of the company said in an interview with the media that HiSilicon, the Kirin chipmaker, is only a chip design department. He also mentioned that Huawei has no profit requirement from HiSilicon.

However, the Huawei chief also mentioned that the company will continue to support and raise its chip designing subsidiary and will also allow outstanding talents to join the company to prepare it for future ventures.

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.
