On May 9th, the HUAWEI community announced yesterday that a speech by HUAWEI director and senior vice president Chen Lifang addressed the new staff. In a number of new staff questions, Chen Lifang answered HUAWEI's attitude towards the US market and the company's future plans.
Chen Lifang said that one of the basic principles of HUAWEI's global business is to abide by the law, to comply with the certainty of legal compliance and to deal with the uncertainty of international politics. In its operating market, HUAWEI strictly adheres to local laws and regulations, as well as international export controls, including the United Nations, the United States and the European Union, and the sanctions rules.

Before that, the Wall Street journal also quoted government sources as saying that the three major U.S. government agencies, the Ministry of justice, the Treasury and the Ministry of commerce were investigating HUAWEI to investigate whether the latter had violated the U. S. sanctions order and exported products containing American technology to Iran.
As for the fallout in the U.S. market, as early as April 17 at Huawei analysts' conference, Huawei chairman Xu Zhijun said that some things are not based on Huawei's will, rather than you can't control it, it's better to ignore him.
In response to questions raised by the new staff, Mr Chan said:
During the exchange, she quoted a talk from Ren Zhengfei, the founder of the company.
At the end of March this year, HUAWEI announced the 2017 annual report, which showed that its mainstay operator business grew by only 2.5% year-on-year, with a sharp decline in the 23.6% growth rate in 2016.
In the face of the question from new employees about whether Huawei's operator business is fast reaching the ceiling, Chen believes that no industry has seen unlimited growth, and that it is normal for businesses to encounter ceilings, which is an inevitable rule of industrial development.
She said that HUAWEI is also following the industrial cycle adjustment to make reasonable planning on the carrier's business. At the same time, HUAWEI is also doing horizontal expansion around core competence.
According to the introduction, HUAWEI will do a five year plan each year, focusing on the core capabilities of operators, enterprises, consumers and cloud businesses to focus on the ICT infrastructure and intelligent terminal areas, and will not diversify.
