Huawei is prepared to increase 5G production capacity in Europe if that helps to assuage fears of spying, the company’s founder Ren Zhengfei told Canadian newspaper Globe and Mail. The US considers Huawei to be tightly linked to the Chinese regime and blacklisted the firm earlier this year. It’s urging Europe to do the same, but European countries are divided on that issue. Previously, Huawei offered to license its 5G technology to other companies – a move similarly intended to put minds at rest.
