US tech firms will likely influence decision on whether Huawei’s license will be extended, research firm says

CNBC | August 19, 2019

U.S. President Donald Trump is set to decide Monday on whether to extend a temporary agreement allowing Huawei to do business in the U.S. — and Washington’s decision will likely be influenced by American tech firms, according to research firm International Data Corporation. The U.S. Commerce Department placed the Chinese tech giant on a blacklist — the so-called Entity List — in May, preventing American companies from selling or transferring technology to Huawei unless they were granted a special license. Days later, the U.S. government eased some of those restrictions for 90 days. That temporary reprieve is set to end on Monday.
