When asked about the type of testing and control that would be Huawei Is willing to implement it to convince the US government that its technologies will not be used in a harmful way, Purdy spoke of cooperation Huawei with other countries in North America and Europe.
“In different countries around the world, we are negotiating with the government concerned about the kind of security framework they need, whether it’s product testing or compliance monitoring, and that’s what we’ve done in the UK, and that’s what we’ve done in Canada, Germany”.
While he said he could not “pre-judge” the requirements for doing business in the United States, Purdy suggested that they could involve restrictions such as the inability to sell to the government or prevent them from selling to critical infrastructure.
