The year the Chinese propaganda machine failed spectacularly
If President Xi Jinping’s team carries out annual job appraisals, China’s overseas propaganda team will surely be found to have performed catastrophically.  Whether it is Hong Kong or Xinjiang, Huawei or the trade war with the United States, the Chinese regime has had a string of notable public relations failures this year. While the regime’s propaganda efforts have worked quite well on the domestic audience, mainly because of the Great Firewall, the overseas propaganda arm has suffered major defeats.  Despite deploying numerous resources via official and unofficial channels, the regime has not only failed to achieve its intended purpose of interacting well with the rest of the world but als

Huawei faces backlash in China over detention of ex-employee
The lengthy detention of a former Huawei employee has triggered public outrage in China towards the tech giant as well as the country’s justice system.  Li Hongyuan, who worked at Huawei for 12 years, was detained for 251 days from December 2018, after the company apparently accused him of extortion. He was eventually released, he said, because prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence to press charges against him.  The case became one of the most discussed topics on Chinese social media over the past week since legal documents about Li began circulating, sparking an online debate about the power of big corporations. Li later confirmed in multiple interviews that the documents were genuine. I

Huawei lures top talent with pay five times market rate
As US-China tension threatens to sever the access that Chinese firms have to foreign know-how and markets, Huawei Technologies is racing to develop its own technology – by writing fat paychecks. The Shenzhen-based telecommunications equipment giant is prepared to pay successful candidates at least five times what their peers are making, Huawei said in a recruitment post on its WeChat account. Having the talent to develop proprietary technology has taken on increasing strategic importance for Chinese companies amid America's and China’s competition for supremacy in advanced technologies. Huawei is looking for people “who have made extraordinary achievements in mathematics, computer science, p

Canadian public opinion of China deteriorates sharply
Canadians’ views on China have worsened significantly in recent months, according to a new poll.  More than two-thirds of Canadians are now rejecting closer ties with Beijing. A similar proportion wants Huawei, a Chinese telecoms giant, to be banned from the country’s 5G networks, according to a study by Research Co, a public opinion research company. Mario Canseco, president of Research Co, said Canadian perceptions of China had “deteriorated markedly” over the past five months and that the speed of deterioration “was really surprising.”  The poll also found increasing support for Canada’s handling of the case of Meng Wanzhou, a Huawei executive. Meng was arrested in Canada in December, at

Business book ‘The American Trap’ is selling like hot cakes in China
As photos of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei showing journalists around his office began to circulate this week, a book on his desk caught the eye of the public – The American Trap. It was a Chinese translation of Le Piège Américain, written by Frenchman Frederic Pierucci, a former executive with French rail transport company Alstom, about his five-year tussle with the US Department of Justice. It was co-authored by journalist Matthieu Aron. The American Trap, first released in France in January, was published in China in April, just as China and the US struggled to reach an agreement to end their trade war. Its Chinese tagline reads: “how to dismantle other countries’ business giants through no

Huawei employees banned from reviewing papers for over 200 journals
The impact of American sanctions on Chinese telecoms giant Huawei has extended beyond business to reach scientific research. The New York-based IEEE, or Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, has moved to ban Huawei employees from peer-reviewing research papers submitted to its journals after the Chinese company was added to a US trade blacklist. IEEE is the world's biggest technical professional organization and publishes more than 200 journals. The decision by IEEE was leaked online across Chinese social media on May 29, igniting a backlash from some of the country’s leading scientists who described the move as “anti-science” and “violating academic freedom.” Zhang Haixia, a p

US ban prompts a rush to sell Huawei phones
Panic selling of Huawei smartphones on Carousell, a community marketplace app, offered Singaporean buyer Eugene Teo an opportunity he couldn’t resist. His new Huawei P30 cost S$600 ($435), about $217 below the normal retail price. The bargains are being driven by recent restrictions the United States imposed on the Chinese tech giant. Watch the video above.

Kicking Huawei out is more important than a trade deal, Bannon says
Driving Huawei out of the United States and Europe is “10 times more important” than a trade deal with China, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said. While Bannon holds no public office, his brazen call for curbing China economic influence in the US mirrors the Trump administration’s toughening sanctions against Chinese companies. President Donald Trump signed an executive order last week to effectively ban the Chinese telecoms giant Huawei form the US market and cut off its vital supply as talks to resolve the US-China trade war reached a stalemate. “The executive order is 10 times more important than walking away from the trade deal,” Bannon told the South China Morning Post

Apple suffers collateral damage in US-China tech cold war
As a new economic cold war breaks out between the United States and China, Apple has found itself caught in the crossfire. The Trump administration’s move to put Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei on a trade blacklist last week has provoked anger in China, where the brand is seen as a symbol of Chinese innovation.  Some longtime Chinese fans of Apple say they have ditched the American brand for a Huawei handset amid rising US-China tensions. “There is a calling from my heart that I need to show support for Chinese brands,” said Wang Zhixin, the manager at one of China’s largest solar module makers, who replaced his iPhone 7 earlier this month with a Huawei P30.

Huawei to roll out its own operating system
Chinese smartphone giant Huawei, which could soon be banned from buying US components and technology, is planning to launch its own operating system. Huawei’s mobile business chief executive Richard Yu Chengdong said the company’s own OS will be able to power its smartphones, computers and several other gadgets. It will also be compatible with all Android applications and existing web applications, Yu said, according to a report published by Chinese newspaper Securities Times on Tuesday. “The Huawei OS is likely to hit the market as soon as this fall, and no later than spring next year,” said Yu. Huawei did not immediately verify or comment on the report. Shenzhen-based Huawei, which uses G
