Huawei still hop­ing

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - BUSINESS -

HUAWEI Aus­tralia chair­man John Lord has re­it­er­ated his claim the Chi­nese com­pany does not pose a threat to na­tional se­cu­rity amid re­ports it will be barred from work­ing on the 5G net­work.

The for­mer rear ad­mi­ral in the Australian Navy yes­ter­day said Huawei was still hope­ful that it would play a part as tel­cos pre­pared to roll out 5G in­fra­struc­ture across Aus­tralia.

Mr Lord told the ABC the tech­nol­ogy com­pany was still in talks with the fed­eral gov­ern­ment and had not come across any “real con­cerns” about its par­tic­i­pa­tion in the 5G net­work devel­op­ment process.

His com­ments fol­low re­ports Huawei would be banned from hav­ing any in­volve­ment.
