President Trump Met With Tech CEOs To Discuss Huawei And Trade Practices
On Monday, the US President Donald Trump met with tech CEO’s to discuss Trade Practices. The main motive behind the meeting was to discuss the national security issues as well as Huawei.
Mr. Trump met with CEOs, Sanjay Mehrotra of Micron, Stephen Milligan of Western Digital, Sundar Pichai of Google, Steven Mollenkopf of Qualcomm, Chuck Robbins of Cisco, Robert Swan of Intel, and Hock Tan of Broadcom.
In a press release, The White House said that the meeting was “constructive.” One of the main concerns included Huawei and the security concerns around the use of Chinese equipment.
However, the discussions came in as the tech companies will face the potential. The following week will have increased regulations of hearings on Capitol Hill.
According to the White House and the sources the executives “requested” from the department of commerce regarding Huawei and Mr. Trump agreed.
Since Washington banned Huawei citing the national security issues, Huawei has a tense relationship with the US government.
A spokesperson from Intel said, “We regularly engage with Administration on issues important to Intel and our industry.”
The Spokesperson further added, “We appreciate joining our peers attending today’s White House Economic meeting and sharing Intel’s perspective on economic issues, including how the current trade situation with China impacts the critical US semiconductor industry.”
A spokesperson from Micron said, “We believe strategic technology investment and policies that ensure open and fair trade on a level playing field are essential to ongoing US technology leadership as well as economic growth throughout the world,” according to the sources.
In the meeting numerous people from the White House and Trump administration were present. Which includes, the acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney.
The meeting will probably help in reaching and sorting of the Trade disputes.
