Fun fact: Alexander Downer was on the board of Huawei Australia before he took up his diplomatic post in London.

That said, supply-chain security is something the IT and telco industries need to pay more attention to. That’s not about China though.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Huawei is certainly trying to sells its telco products (or “build a network of ­influence” as the story puts it), but so does everyone else.
