January 19, Sweden
span>5G spectrum auction has ended successfully. However, As a permanently neutral country, Sweden disregards the principle of fairness and requires telecom operators participating in the auction not to use Huawei and ZTE 5G equipment , Build a local 5G network. Huawei has appealed twice, but the country still insists on going its own way. To protect the legitimate rights and interests of domestic enterprises, China has just spoken.
According to the latest report of the World Wide Web on January 21, China responded that Sweden In the absence of evidence, the unprovoked exclusion of Chinese companies from the local 5G construction violates the basic principles of the WTO and international rules , It also harms the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies.
Therefore, China will urge Sweden to immediately correct wrong Starting from the overall situation of economic and trade cooperation, we will work with China to find solutions. China will take all necessary measures to resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises.
In fact, Sweden’s unfair behavior in the 5G field, even the China’s 5G equipment supplier Ericsson can’t stand it either. Observer.com reported on January 5 that the Swedish media exposed that Ericsson CEO Brje Ekholm wrote a letter to the local government requesting that Huawei be allowed to participate in the local 5G construction.
Bao Yikang pointed out that if Sweden really excludes Huawei’s 5G equipment, then China may Will take reciprocal measures, and Ericsson is likely to lose China, this important strategic market. And China’s hardline attitude also shows that if Sweden does not correct its mistakes as soon as possible, it may affect Sino-Swiss economic and trade relations and cause Swedish companies to suffer losses in the Chinese market.
Data show that in 2019, the bilateral relationship between China and Switzerland The trade volume is as high as 17.68 billion US dollars (approximately 122 billion yuan). According to the National Development and Reform Commission, China will overtake the United States in 2020 and become the world’s largest consumer market. In other words, as demand in the Chinese market becomes stronger, Sweden will also get more Chinese orders, which will boost the country’s economy.
However, once Sweden does not repent, China may take reciprocal measures against Swedish companies , Swedish companies will suffer heavy losses.
