Huawei phones -In a continuing, unrelenting war between American Apple and Chinese Huawei phones,
The latter received support from Chinese companies

by the United States of America.

to support the Chinese Huawei in its crisis with the United States.
It is reported that a report issued by the newspaper “Nikki Asian Review” said that information technology
and food companies in China will support their employees to replace iPhone phones with Huawei phones,
Including the Shanghai Yoloki company specialized in electronics manufacturing,
which announced that it will support its employees to buy about two phones per employee,
- while Shenzhen Yaidaheng Technology announced its support to its employees by paying 18% of the price of the Huawei ZTE phone.
In addition, published by more than twenty Chinese companies about
- its intention to increase reliance on Huawei products such as the business management system.

Informed sources announced to Reuters that US President
Donald Trump is considering issuing an executive order for the new year
- to announce a national emergency whereby national companies are prevented from using communication equipment produced
by the Chinese companies “Huawei and ZTB”.
The move is the latest step by the Trump administration
to close the US market to Huawei Technologies Limited and ZTE,
two of the largest Chinese network equipment companies.
The United States claims that they are operating under the guidance of the Chinese government,
and that their equipment can be used to spy on Americans.
This executive order is due to be issued by next January.
It is expected that officials of the Ministry of Commerce will interpret
it as a work mandate to limit the spread of equipment manufactured by companies.
The importance of this American executive order is that it comes at a time of escalation
of the trade war between the United States and China.
Which recently prevented the sale of old models of American iPhones.
It also comes at a time
when US wireless operators are seeking partners as they prepare
to implement fifth-generation wireless technology.
