China’s biggest telecom and networking equipment manufacturer has apparently been fed up with allegations marring its name and had challenged the United States government to launch a formal investigation.
Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., which is gunning to increase its market share in the telecoms equipment market which includes cellular phones, has said that it is open to any investigation which would clear its name.
U.S.-based Bill Plummer, the company’s vice president for external affairs, said that the company is “literally willing to do anything the government might ask to give them visibility,” according to Reuters.
“We’re open to any type of investigation or audit or review that they feel would address whatever concerns they have,” he said.
According to the company, unsubstantiated allegations had notably slowed its US business dealings for the past decade.
The request from the Chinese company comes after a foreign investment review done by the US government is forcing the company to sell its stake at US company 3Leaf.
