Amid trade talks, China urges U.S. to respect its right to develop, prosper
The United States should respect China’s right to develop and become prosperous, the Chinese government’s top diplomat told a visiting U.S. delegation, reiterating that the country’s doors to the outside world would open wider. The world’s two largest economies began their latest round of trade talks this week to resolve a bitter dispute in which each has levied tariffs on imports from the other. The United States has accused China of unfair trade practices, including forced technology transfers, charges it has denied. Respect and cooperation are the correct choice for both countries, something the international community hopes to see, State Councillor Wang Yi told the delegation of U.S. business leaders and former officials in Beijing on Tuesday.

Qualcomm gets licence to sell 4G chips to Huawei

Qualcomm | November 17, 2020

The U.S. government has at long last backed off on Chinese cell phone producer, Huawei. The nation has permitted American chipset producer Qualcomm to sell 4G cell phone chips to Huawei Technologies Co Ltd. This is the primary exclusion made by the US government since the expanding pressures between the two nations. The American government had trained all chipset makers to quit sourcing items to the Chinese organization since Septemeber. The spokes person from Qualcomm did not specify the exact chip that they will be supplying to Huawei. However, they did confirm that it is related to mobile devices. Other than Qualcomm chipsets, Huawei has its own scope of chipsets which has been being used in many gadgets sold by the organization, particularly on mid-reach and spending contributions. The organization's capability to plan its own chips was additionally impeded in September by U.S. exchange limitations that obstructed its admittance to chip plan programming and creation devices. Industry investigators trust Huawei's store of chips bought before the boycott could run out ahead of schedule one year from now, devastating its cell phone business. Bernstein analyst Stacy Rasgon said the Qualcomm license would have a "limited impact" because it covers only 4G chips while consumers are shifting to newer 5G devices. Rasgon said it is still unclear whether U.S. officials will grant Qualcomm licenses for 5G smartphone chips. About Qualcomm Who is Qualcomm, and what do we do? We are engineers, scientists and business strategists. We are from many different countries and speak many different languages. We come from diverse cultures and have unique perspectives. Together, we focus on a single goal—we invent breakthrough technologies that transform how the world connects, computes, and communicates.
