The other side of Huawei

Although far from a homogeneous entity, the Chinese Communist Party owns and controls key sectors of the country's economy, and its ties with Huawei are a strong indication it considers the telco 'one of its own'.

In response to the Australian government’s decision to prevent Huawei from tendering for national broadband network projects, Huawei Australia went on the offensive. Former foreign minister and current board member Alexander Downer criticised the decision as absurd. Dismissing suspicions of Huawei’s links to the Chinese Communist Party and People’s Liberation Army, the company’s local spokesman Jeremy Mitchell told the ABC Radio that the decision demonstrated "a lack of understanding of modern China”.
