The last few months have been filled with uncertainity for Huawei, with the Trump administration placing roadblocks on suppliers of components.
Now as negotiators from the United States and China are set to meet in Washington for their 13th round of trade talks, the New York Times has reported that the the Trump administration plans to issue licenses soon that will allow some American to supply nonsensitive goods to Huawei.
According to the report, in a meeting last week, President Trump gave the green light to begin approving the licenses, which will allow a select few American companies to bypass a ban his administration placed on Huawei earlier this year.
The ban on Huawei has long been speculated as the US administration’s leverage in trade talks. Interestingly, the report points out how despite the ban, many American companies have continued supplying goods to Huawei by finding ways to avoid labeling goods as American-made and channeling more goods produced outside the United States to the company.
