Huawei Opens Brussels Security Lab in Bid to Reassure EU
Huawei has inaugurated its Cyber Security Transparency Centre in Brussels, the political capital of the European Union. The move is seen as an attempt by the Chinese tech firm to convince European governments not to boycott its 5G mobile communications technology, which the US government has done over cyberespionage fears.
Huawei is aiming for a leading role in the establishment of 5G networks in Europe, the tech giant’s largest foreign market. According to Huawei’s president for Western Europe, “[t]here’s no evidence,” of the company collaborating with Chinese intelligence, as the US is claiming.
