A press release stated the US was in a relentless pursuit to tighten its stranglehold on our firm,

However chairman Guo Ping advised an analyst summit on Monday: "Fortunately we have now survived to date."

The US on Friday stated it will require international semiconductor-makers that use US know-how and software program in chip design to seek US authorities approval to ship to Huawei.

It stated the added control was essential to close a loophole that had emerged because the US final yr moved to chop off Huawei from entry to US-made semiconductor chips, which type the spine of many pc and telephone methods.

"Our enterprise will inevitably be impacted," Guo Ping stated of the brand new guidelines. "Regardless of that, because the challenges over the previous yr have helped us develop a thicker skin, we're assured about discovering solutions soon".

Since being placed on the US blacklist last yr, he stated Huawei had been pressured to rewrite pc code, evaluate procurement and spend hundreds of hours to ensure enterprise continuity.

"Huawei is rather like this aircraft riddled with bullet holes," he stated. "Over the previous yr, patching up the holes was our priority."

Nevertheless, the agency warned that the brand new rules would harm the firm's capability to serve and keep its networks and providers for billions of consumers around the globe. Huawei stated the US campaign towards the company would finally injury the nation's credibility with worldwide corporations.

"It is going to injury the belief and collaboration inside the international semiconductor business and could improve battle and loss within these industries," it stated.
