The Trump administration teams up with western allies to bar HuaWei and other Chinese tech firms from building the 5G high-speed infrastructure due to national economic security concerns. Justice Department unseals a pair of cases against HuaWei. The first indictment accuses HuaWei of trying to steal trade secrets from T-Mobile by promising obscene bonuses to former employees who would collect confidential information on telecom competitors. The second indictment suggests that HuaWei might have worked to skirt U.S. economic sanctions on Iran.

Robert Williams, executive director at Yale Law School and former consultant to the U.S. State Department, suggests that these criminal investigations should not be viewed as part of the Sino-American trade negotiations because the U.S. law enforcement takes place well in advance of bilateral trade discussions. The Trump administration now asks its western allies from Britain and Canada to France and Germany to ban HuaWei and Ant Financial Group from getting access to critical technologies such as 5G high-speed telecom networks, fintech payment solutions, smart sensors, and autonomous robots and vehicles. This case indicates potential fraud on the part of HuaWei CFO and so sends a negative signal that China might rip off American tech firms with chronic trade deficits and tech transfer practices.
