According to the latest report, the CEO of Ericsson intracted with media and said that “If the ban on Huawei still exists, Ericsson will leave Sweden.”
Reports revealed that Ericsson’s CEO Bao Yikang said in a text message to the Swedish Minister of Commerce Anna Hallberg that the company would leave Sweden unless the (Swedish government) lifted its complaint against Huawei. And ZTE’s ban.
Due to Sweden’s plans to ban Huawei from including the country’s 5G construction business, this has caused Ericsson to worry about its own situation, such as being excluded in the Chinese market.
Hallberg responded to this: the government cannot lift the Huawei ban, because the Swedish Post and Telecommunications Administration’s interim secretariat decided this situation, and this decision is based on the recommendations of the security department and the Wehrmacht.
Public information shows that Ericsson has tried to hire lawyers to help Huawei in litigation and Bao Yikang said, “Although we have talked with several Swedish law firms, no one is willing to help Huawei.”
