The new US pressure has “naturally given rise to some concerns”, said Huawei University Deputy Director, Ryan Liu.

“But I have worked for Huawei for many years and we are confident that the company will take us on the right path.”

Huawei said on Monday that the move would disrupt the world supply chain and to threaten “Survival” of the company.

Since company executives say Washington exited the firm as a proxy target in the broader US-China trade conflict that began in late 2018, its global staff has now grown from 180,000 to 194,000.

Huawei University closed 40 of its physical classes Coronavirus The explosion occurred in late January.

But in-class classes resumed again in May, after turning to online courses for employees in China, Africa, Europe and elsewhere.
