In May 2019 the Trump administration took several steps aimed at limiting the business activities of Huawei because of national security concerns. The president issued an executive order banning the sale of Huawei products in the United States, expanding restrictions that were first applied to federal government agencies. Furthermore, the Commerce Department placed Huawei on its “Entities List,” banning American firms from supplying products and services to Huawei. Four days later, the Commerce Department issued a “Temporary General License” (TGL) allowing firms to provide support for previously concluded business. The TGL is set to expire on August 19. These steps represent not only a major adjustment in American treatment of Huawei and potentially American policy toward China, but also how the world should manage the increasingly fraught technology-national security nexus.
This event features a formal debate on the question, “Should the United States severely restrict Huawei’s business?” Arguing “yes” is the team of Martijn Rassser of the Center for a New American Security and Dan David of FG Alpha Management. Arguing “no” is the team of Paul Triolo of the Eurasia Group and Erin Ennis from the US-China Business Council. CSIS’s Scott Kennedy will moderate the debate as well as the subsequent follow-up discussion with the participants and audience about the pros and cons of specific actions toward Huawei and the implications for US-China relations, American foreign policy, and the shape of the global economy.
This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
