Sweden’s stubborn hold on Huawei ban to hurt itself: expert

(Global Times) A Swedish court has reportedly dismissed an appeal by Huawei against the country's 5G ban on the Chinese telecom giant, dimming the company's hope in participating in the small-sized market's 5G rollout in the future.


Ignoring domestic businesses' opposition against the Huawei ban and the rising plea for free market and competition, the Swedish government's unwise political manipulation under US influence will cause considerable damage to itself, Chinese experts noted.

In response to Huawei's appeal on January 5, the Swedish Supreme Administrative Court on Thursday said in a statement that the appeal should be dismissed with no more convincing reasons, according to Reuters on Friday.

The latest dismissal from the Swedish Supreme Administrative Court came only a few days before the 5G spectrum auctions scheduled for January 19, allowing for Swedish telecoms regulator PTS to resume the auctions when the Chinese telecom equipment maker is excluded from the country's 5G rollout, according to media reports.

Given there is only very limited time for Huawei to fight against the ruling, the situation for the Chinese company in the market is not optimistic as the court has actually stood on the same side as the PTS, which is under heavy influence of the Swedish Ministry of Defense, said Chinese experts, noting that the Swedish defense ministry has a long-term close relationship with the US.

Sweden's decision on Huawei is heavily influenced by the US, and being involved in such a political game will not deliver any benefits for itself, Xiang Ligang, director-general of the Beijing-based Information Consumption Alliance, told the Global Times on Saturday.

Removing the leading 5G player's gear from existing infrastructure and core functions in Sweden's communication networks will only largely delay and lead to larger bills for its 5G rollout, Xiang added.

Earlier this month, Huawei rival - Swedish telecoms giant Ericsson, was reported as opposing the Swedish government's ban on preventing Huawei and ZTE from participating in the construction of 5G in the country.

Borje Ekholm, head of Ericsson, said that Ericsson would leave Sweden if authorities supported the ban on Huawei and ZTE, local newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported.

Ericsson's threat to leave Sweden over the Huawei ban shows Swedish businesses' concern over its government's arbitrary move to hurt market rules, putting them in a tight spot in the Chinese market, whose size is much bigger than Sweden's and is vital for some companies, Xiang said.

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's government will not seek to bar Chinese telecom equipment maker Huawei Technologies Co Ltd from 5G network auctions slated for June this year, newspaper Estado de S. Paulo reported on Saturday, citing government and industry sources.


Financial costs potentially worth billions of dollars and the exit of ally President Donald Trump from the White House are forcing President Jair Bolsonaro to backtrack on his opposition to Huawei bidding to provide the next generation cellular network for carriers in Brazil, the paper said.

Like Trump, Bolsonaro opposes Huawei on the unproven grounds that it shares confidential data with China's Communist government.


But, with China being Brazil's largest trade partner and Huawei's ability to compete on price, he has faced resistance from industry and within his own government, including from Vice President Hamilton Mourao.

Pressure from US on 5G of China is political with final consequential result of detrimental delay to be in gear with telecommunications technolgoies that will serve better for the future.

Sweden buckles under pressure from US is clear. Its dependency on US is exhibited with its demonstration to ban 5G technology from China but will pay extreme heavy price with huge losses to be incurred by installing that from US.

Unfortunately and under Biden Administration, countries that wait for 5G telecommunications technologies from US will be enslaved by US like a dog with heavy mental locks and chains on its neck and all four!

Brazil was in the same situation.

   Brazil is one of a number of countries to have faced pressure from the US to exclude the Chinese company from 5G.

  However, latest twist once again is that Huawei will provide equipment for the nation’s 5G network.  

  Brazil’s vice-president, said: “Huawei has already a position in Brazil. It works with many companies and Brazilian universities, so this topic is already closed.”

  The United States continuously used to treat Latin America as its backyard.  Them days been fading like an everlasting fog...
