Experts point out that this change is quite significant. It will allow American companies to participate directly in the formation of specifications and rules governing new technologies. On the other hand, experts say, the new rules indicate that the US actually acknowledged the scale of the role of Huawei in the global market for these technologies.
Recall that in may of 2019, Huawei was included in the black list of the USA. That is, U.S. firms banned from doing business with the Chinese technology giant. But its inclusion in the black list also created confusion on whether American firms to participate in discussions on standards development, in which Huawei was also a member.
“the United States will not concede leadership in global innovation. This change recognizes the importance of using American ingenuity to promote and protect our economic and national security,” – said the Minister of Commerce Wilbur Ross. “The Department is committed to protecting the interests of national security and foreign policy of the United States, encouraging American industry to defend the U.S. technology and their proper use, and to ensure that they become international standards,” he added.
the TV Channel said that at the moment, U.S. and European companies play a key role in setting standards for technologies of the last generation. But now there are new technologies that are promoted including Huawei, such as mobile Internet of the next generation, known as 5G.
And the main question, experts say CNBC, is who will determine these standards. In fact, in Washington realized that without US participation in the formation of these standards, American companies simply will quickly lose their competitiveness on a global scale.
