US mulls new regulations to further restrict Huawei suppliers

US President Donald Trump alongside his administration were contemplating an option to stretch its power to prevent foreign shipments of tech products built on US technology to world’s No. 1 telecommunication gear manufacturer, Huawei Technologies, as a US attempt to blacklist Huawei in a bid to disrupt its core supply chain back in May this year had botched to bear fruits, at least two sources directly briefed over the subject-matter had revealed on Friday, the 29th of November 2019, on condition of anonymity as the sources were not authorized to speak over the subject-matter.

Besides, according to the sources, under present legislation, critical foreign supply chains to China’s Huawei Technologies remained beyond the grasp of US authorities, which in effect had prompted an inter-agency discussion on whether to change two critical rules which might have proffer sufficient scale of power to prevent foreign tech shipments containing US technology to China’s Huawei Technologies.

Meanwhile, followed by a break out of the report that the US was drawing up a plan to curb foreign tech shipments containing US technologies to China’s Huawei, a Washington trade lawyer was quoted saying on Friday (November 29th) that the changes would likely to represent a major expansion of US export controls and to annoy a slew of US-based companies alongside allies of the United States.
