Technology giant, Huawei is battling another yet another dilemma on how to communicate internally with its own U.S. employees sequel to US Ongoing ban.
The trade battle between the US and Chinese authority is really affecting a lot of thing between the two powerful countries.
This dilemma has led Huawei to order its Chinese employees to bar technical meetings with their U.S. contacts and sent home the American workers deployed in research and development functions in Shenzhen headquarters.
Dang Wenshuan, Huawei’s chief strategy architect, in an interview with the Financial Times said that the company has also limited general communications between its Chinese and U.S. workers.
The Chinese technology giant is still struggling to comply with the murky laws after its weeks-long tension with the U.S. government sees no signs of resolution in the immediate future.
It was gathered that Huawei now controls the subjects of interactions the workers in its campus have with overseas visitors with conversations not relating to technology.
The FT report that Dang said the company was just trying to ensure it was on the right side of the law as it remains unclear exactly how export controls could mandate disruption of internal communications within an organization.
