London (CNN Business)China’s Huawei shunned the spotlight as it grew to become one of the world’s top tech companies. Now it’s going on the offensive to counter a US campaign aimed at curbing its business.
Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei has given a series of rare interviews
in recent weeks, and Huawei executives were out in force to defend the company at Mobile World Congress.
The company has taken out a full-page advertisement in the Wall Street Journal. In New Zealand, where the government has blocked its top telecom firm from using Huawei equipment in its 5G mobile network, Huawei is running ads that compare 5G without Huawei to “life without rugby.”
