The presidents of the United States and China met during the weekend, and decided to reopen trade negotiations in which Huawei was a bargaining chip between both sides. The initial ban from late May was mitigated and now the White House will allow US companies to trade technology that is widely available on the market.
The National Economic Council chairman Larry Kudlow said on Fox News Sunday that microchip firms in particular “are selling products that are widely available from other countries”, meaning that if some hardware or technology can be found at another market, companies from the United States are allowed to trade and stay competitive.
