"Huawei’s 5G solution is not just the best on the market. But it is to a large extent a European product, many of the technologies are actually developed by the researchers and scientists in Europe."
 
 
According to Liu, Huawei has been operating in Europe for nearly 20 years. 
 
It now has 12,200 employees in Europe -- 70 percent hired locally.
 
Liu said Huawei is also pleased that Europe is coming out with its coordinated approach to 5G, including developing the General Data Protection Regulation.

"Huawei has been respecting all applicable laws and regulations. Now Huawei is becoming the victim of the bullying by the U.S. administration. This is not just an attack against Huawei. It is an attack on the liberal, rules-based order." 
 
Huawei currently runs 23 R&D centers located in 14 European countries.
 
The company has trialed 5G technologies in testbeds in Germany, Britain and Italy.
