The United States extends the veto to Huawei until May 2021




The Donald Trump administration has extended an executive order that prohibits American companies from working with Chinese telecommunications companies Huawei and ZTE for one year, until May 2021.

This is reported Reuters about the executive order that was introduced in May 2019. Of course there are no specific companies named, but it is clear that these two factors are the most affected by the decision.

The May 2019 order was drafted within the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which the US government put into place when it was considered that using Huawei or ZTE equipment would put the security of the country at risk.

Leaving aside the political consequences of the trade war between the United States and China, this veto has severely affected the mobile phone sector and there seems to be no plague like this one that has been able to stop it.

All of Huawei's new facilities introduced after May 2019 are not compatible with Google's services, and logically this has affected its sales in Europe. On the other hand, this was not the case in China, where Google is present.

Although the veto operation came into effect last year, the US Department of Commerce has released several extensions which allowed Huawei to continue doing business, as renewers approached software from google for hardware before May 2019.

The current extension expires on May 15, 2020 and it is unknown if the US government will decide to offer another one. In any case, it seems certain that Huawei will not be able to introduce a

smartphone and Google Apps until at least May 2021.

That is why it is certain that the Chinese company will continue to work on developing its own Huawei Mobile Services and its application store. AppGallery, when they gradually installed new applications.

Over time, this could mean that Huawei has been able to launch a third ecosystem next to Google and Apple. Huawei mobiles still use Android, but can't use the Google Play Store for apps or others software by Google.
