Former ZTE executives are duty bound to help their old owners

Original title: former ZTE executives shout: willing to help out free of charge

Comprehensive news of on April 20, Wang Tao, a former international executive of ZTE, submitted an alternative "registration certificate" on his personal wechat account, saying that ZTE was absolutely and definitely not wronged for being arrested this time. He also said that he was willing to help ZTE solve the problem, and publicly promised that he would only help the old owners without any conditions.

Time finance contacted Wang Tao himself, but did not reply to questions such as the reasons for the public outcry, specific solutions, and the impact of the ban on ZTE.

In the article, Wang Tao said that he has been in charge of ZTE's international market since 2002. Through his many years of work experience, he believes that ZTE's punishment is not only affected by the trade war between the two countries, but also due to ZTE's improper behavior in international trade. It is not unjust that ZTE was banned by the United States. From the perspective of basic thinking, when dealing with international affairs, ZTE's thinking of crossing the river by feeling the stone and making up for its mistakes conflicts greatly with the requirement of the United States to act in accordance with established procedures and rules. As a result, ZTE often fails to understand the essence of things after making mistakes. From the perspective of specific affairs, ZTE is in confusion in the process of internationalization.

In addition, Wang Tao stressed that ZTE's biggest enemy is not the US Department of Commerce or trump, but its domestic and foreign friends and businessmen. If ZTE is not willing to realize this, its friends will try their best to make it realize it.

When ZTE encounters this incident, some experts are noncommittal about whether Huawei, the same Chinese enterprise, will lend a helping hand. However, they emphasize that the current competitor of Chinese enterprises in the international market is often another Chinese enterprise. If ZTE falls down due to the chip embargo incident, its international market is more likely to be absorbed by Huawei. But on the Internet, there are also old employees who call themselves Huawei, saying that Huawei has given up the U.S. market.

On the same day, when answering a reporter's question, Xu Zhijun, Huawei's rotating chairman, stressed that Huawei does not position chips as an independent business and will not create revenue based on chips. Huawei's own chips are only positioned to carry Huawei's hardware architecture, so as to achieve product differentiation, competitiveness and low cost. So far, there is no idea or plan to sell Kirin chips. Xu Zhijun did not comment on ZTE's embargo.

Faced with the huge crisis of embargo, ZTE issued a statement in its official wechat, saying that ZTE has established a compliance management committee directly led by the president, established a team of senior export control compliance experts covering the world, and organized compliance training covering more than 65000 employees. Yin Yimin, chairman of the board of directors, said in an internal email that the company's board of directors and management will do their best to protect the legitimate rights of 80000 employees to work and the legitimate interests of 80000 employees' families.

In an interview with the media, will Reinert, news officer of the US Department of Commerce, said that the seven-year export ban on ZTE took effect immediately, and there is no room for reversal or negotiation at present. Subsequently, ZTE held a press conference, saying that the US Department of Commerce imposed the most severe sanctions on ZTE, which was extremely unfair to ZTE, and ZTE could not accept it. At the same time, it was also Frank that the US sanctions put the company in a state of shock.

The U.S. imposed a seven-year export ban on ZTE. The incident originated in 2012. The Reuters report gave ZTE's internal waybill to Iran, which was not in line with the U.S. export control policy. The FBI immediately filed a case for investigation. In March 2017, after trump took office, the U.S. Department of Commerce released a report that found ZTE had violated the U.S. export ban, with a total fine of nearly 12 yuan The US side found that ZTE did not strictly implement the punishment on 35 middle-level employees.
