China should ban Ericsson products in China as well, make it fair no? It's called an eye for an eye.
His comment is just to secured Ericsson place in China, as Ericsson telecom equipment is used by telecom carriers there. No sane company would want a tough competition.
Does this fall into WTO purview? It's not exactly trade per se.

It's basic math. If X companies need Y years to build the 5G network in the world, than X-2 companies need probably Y+2 or Y+3 or even Y+5 years to build the same network. Not mentioning that Huawei has maybe the highest technical level on 5G right now.
lewein, 20 Nov 2020oh no, no 5G... honestly not a great loss. As it is now, 5G is not even that fast and has a hi... moreWith killing the competition and banning the companies here and there its not gonna get any better.
Its not about trade freedom and competetion, its about loosing big markets like China in case Ericsson gets banned there like Huawei. Ericsson will not be affected much in case Huawei also competes with it in Sweden but ban on Ericsson in China will have much bigger impact. For Huawei Sweden is not much that big market than some African Countries but for Ericsson it is huge.
Free trade unless if its huawei since they have connection to CCP because we are pretty sure that only chinese companies spy on us right? Hypocrites everywhere.

The explanation is pretty simple ... Ericsson sells big in China, on the other hand the Chinese government asks for support overseas.
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2020yeah and China is innocent 🤯I would not go that far but I would argue it can be labeled as the lesser of the two evil.
5G feels more and more like a stop-gap before 6G. Not until then will we have enough bandwidth for future iot implementations.

[deleted post]China does not respect European and USA patents, nor owner rights. Their huaway (like all other china bread companies) grew on others back and innovation, that is not comoetition, that is steal the idea, do for cheap sell cheapper. If that is for you ok, well, for the western world, companies and life, it is not.
[deleted post]I agree with you but Biden is another spineless corporatist who has the interest of the rich in mind. He appointed US Rep. Cedric Richmond who received lobbying only from the fossil fuel corporations and no other Rep. has received so much lobbying as he did, he ranks no.1 so please. USA will keep bullying China, they will not stop because Trump is not president anymore. China is technological threat for them and they need and want to address this. They cannot fall from the 1st place in the world as a super power.

He just think for his country.
If sweeden bans huawei, then Sweden 5G will not be great
He's 100% been subject of threats from China. No one should listen to his words.
There free trade argument falls apart completely when you consider China never have open market and heavily disadvantages foreign companies inside China. To expect other countries to then open markets for China is hypocrisy.
