    Aimee Jorjani, chairman of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation Why is a Trump appointee stopping progress on Americas efforts to compete with China in the vital arena of 5G technology? Thats the question being asked in the wireless industry, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the White House itself. In June of 2019, Aimee Jorjani was confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the first full-time chairman of the obscure Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP). The council is a creation of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and its job is to promote the preservation, enhancement, and sustainable use...

    China’s former finance minister Lou Jiwei warned in a recent speech that China’s “immature” 5G technology is likely to become a failed investment.In recent weeks, Chinese leader Xi Jinping has emphasized the need for the country’s economy to develop an “internal circulation system—in other words, having domestic sectors produce all the goods for Chinese consumption, from raw materials to manufacturing.The economy should “create a new development pattern where domestic and foreign markets can boost each other, with the domestic market as the mainstay,” Xi had said.But Lou said that China’s 5G innovations—heavily subsidized by Beijing—could become a “blockage point”...

    U.S. attacks against China have shifted to a fresh round of arbitrary threats forbidding travel to the United States by employees of Huawei and by Communist Party of China members and their families. The reasoning behind it is astounding. This escalating China-U.S. drama scares and saddens many international expats. Imagine how all this must feel for someone like myself. I'm an Italian American, living here in China for 21 years, and a member of the American Chamber of Commerce which encourages the important ties our businesses and families share here on the ground. And we have to watch American leadership...

    U.S. national security advisor Robert OBrien recently sought to shut down debate about whether China tech giant Huawei installs backdoors in its gear. We have evidence, OBrien announced on February 11, 2020, that wireless networks around the world have been compromised with access points that Beijing mandates. Well known are the concerns this raises for sensitive public and private sector data. Less understood is just how comprehensive Beijings strategy isand how extensive its reach. WE SAY BACKDOORS, BEIJING SAYS RESERVED INTERFACES The CPC is using internal government directives to mandate that Peoples Republic of China (PRC) manufacturers of information and...

    Will Donald Trump score an important victory against China by locking out Huawei from western networks? The Economist tried mightily to avoid giving personal credit to Trump in its analysis of decisions by the UK and Canada to exclude the regime-linked firm from its 5G projects. Instead, they cast it instead as Americas war on Huawei while noting that the final battle will take place in Berlin.That didnt fool Donald Trump, who retweeted it out to his followers: The Economists unsigned analysis of the Huawei fight is sound enough, but for some reason they barely mention Trump at all,...

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered Huawei equipment to be purged completely from Britains 5G network by 2027, risking the ire of China by signalling that the worlds biggest telecoms equipment maker is no longer welcome in the West. The seven-year lag will please British telecoms operators such as BT (BT.L), Vodafone (VOD.L) and Three (0215.HK), which had feared they would be forced to spend billions of pounds to rip out Huawei equipment much faster. From the end of the year, it will be illegal for operators to buy any 5G equipment from Huawei, Britains Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary...

    Experts from the Chinese laboratory at the centre of global suspicion over the coronavirus pandemic have defected and are in the hands of Western intelligence, the architect of Donald Trumps presidential victory claimed last night. Steve Bannon, who was Trumps White House chief strategist and retains close links to the administration, told The Mail on Sunday that spies were building a case against Beijing on the basis that the global pandemic had been caused by a leak from the Institute of Virology in Wuhan and that the subsequent cover-up had amounted to pre-meditated murder. In an exclusive interview, Mr Bannon...

    Reports have circulated that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will call for Chinese-controlled Huawei to be locked out from Britains 5G by the end of this year, after the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) concluded that the products are not secure. The NCSC made the ruling that Huaweis technology was not safe to use, in light of U.S. sanctions that block the Chinese tech firm from using American components. The prospect of Huawei using alternative components, certainly Chinese, fundamentally changes the situation, according to a Whitehall source speaking to The Times. Government ministers who sit on the National Security Council will...

    TONY Blair has urged Boris Johnson to ditch Huawei from Britain's 5G network to save our security relationship with the US. The former PM said No 10 should prioritise trans-Atlantic ties over saving money by using the Chinese telecoms giant. He said: "We need to make a call and it's got to be pro-US in the end. America feels very strongly about this and for good enough reasons. "It's very hard for us not to be with the US on anything that touches US security." Mr Blair said it was "extraordinary" that the West had allowed China to gain "superiority"...
