Europe is likely to embrace Huawei but selectively

Friday, April 26, 2019

Subject

Europe's position on Huawei and 5G.

Significance

No EU member state has banned Huawei or other Chinese suppliers from participating in European 5G networks. However, national governments are ambivalent.

Impacts

  • European manufacturers will continue to face competition from Huawei and ZTE in securing 5G contracts.
  • Severe restrictions on Chinese equipment would damage EU-China cooperation on BRI.
  • Divergence over 5G risks the cohesion of the 'Five Eyes' alliance.
