Huawei on Wednesday said that India would continue to be an important market for the company, and that it hoped the government would take a decision that was beneficial for the country.
The company’s vice president for the Asia-Pacific region, Jay Chen, stated that based on encouraging engagement with the Indian government, the company was confident that Huawei would be welcomed in the country.
The Department of Telecom recently introduced a new policy that instructed Indian telecom operators to add only government-approved ‘gear’ for their network equipment. The move is likely to hurt Chinese telecom giants such as Huawei and ZTE, as there are fears that they might not be included as part of the ‘trusted sources’ for network equipment.
