Recently, in an interview with the associated press, Ren Zhengfei talked about how he views US sanctions,He said US sanctions are not the biggest crisis he has experienced.
In an interview, Ren Zhengfei said Huawei has been facing a test. These tests make him and the company stronger. The pressure exerted by the United States is just a test that needs to be faced in the near future.
He said bluntly:
He compares Huawei's pain in PHS business around 2000 years:Today's crisis (US sanctions) should be only one percent or one tenth of the pressure at that time.
At that time, Huawei wanted to develop PHS products internally, but Ren Zhengfei thought it would distract the company's attention and fail to focus on the development of 3G mobile phones. Under pressure, Ren Zhengfei's depression became very serious, and even revealed to employees that he had tried to commit suicide many times.
Ren also talked about his views on stocks or listings, saying Huawei could not eliminate security concerns in western countries by selling shares or listings to the public.
Ren Zhengfei also said that the reason for Huawei to insist on the non-listing:Few listed companies can become big and strong, and the essence of capital is greed. But we are a private company, so we have been committed to achieving our long-term goals.
