of the transatlantic ties and he's no stranger to such historical ties being used just after joe biden was elected in november he had called for a new deal between the u.s. and. germany and it's very telling these 2 years of a cabaret terms also used by i got america to condemn what happened to condemn what happened this week in washington she said she was furious and she was sad and that's very unusual for the chancellor to express such feelings strong reactions from german officials i imagine has something to do with germans germany's only history exactly it's deeply rooted in german history we're in a country which knows a thing of 2 about a thing or 2 about approach about antidemocratic feelings i'm talking about the nazi regime for example in the thirty's in the forty's but more recently in late august and also in the event. but last year people protestants did storm and try to storm into the german parliament as a commission which is examining how they can make it a safer place

a deep crisis with china. not going to do with huawei not doing business rather than i really made the decision it's much simpler not to do any business with. my usually made one that united states is fighting us with force and determination we didn't expect them to hit so hard to push. how did it come to this how did the chinese telecom company way find itself involved in new technological and geopolitical war. we're now in an era where technology artificial intelligence quantum computing telecommunications and cellphones are the commodities that are driving conflict at a global scale. the reason behind america's anxiety regarding one way is that its activity reaches much farther than telecommunications is he who dominates will undoubtedly dominate a large portion of to moore's economy. a 5 g. network deep sea cables. facial recognition cameras the cities of the future. is

weaving a new technological web that covers the whole world. while way is something that's very dangerous you look at what they've done from a security standpoint from a military standpoint it's very dangers. this is the story of what way the symbol of china's success and the importance of the worst fears of the modern world. to assess the ambitions of the giant well way we had to suck in china not far from the city of. this isn't a brand new theme park but the fast and majestic 8 authors of what we. call size

27 years old respectively too young while we employees among the thousands that work here. their company holds its head up high with pride and ambition. but they can't ignore the tenacity of a special party now dousing white with ice cold water to cool its authors donald trump and his accusations of espionage picked up on by part of the west are on everyone's minds here of course i feel that it was something that never down to accused of something never down and it's not fair it's you know news all the time sometimes in the trade some sane and everywhere and everywhere in the bars no knows about the cause and one talks about it and everyone has the faith and yes and by. as not happy about of. my.

dad always one of the great success stories of the 21st century presidents don't trump me with u.s. companies doing business with the chinese for the last week just about every 1000000000 people and more than 170 countries use this product itself more smartphones than apple and if that can only a family or a spouse in just one week this neighbor has become synonymous with the trade war between the united states and china one way the chinese telecom giant weiwei is accused of espionage by washington and threatened with losing access to american markets and technology. a few months ago just pronouncing the company's name was a challenge. since then while weight has made a name for itself 1st even small phones $59000000.00 of them sold across the globe in the 1st quarter of $2900.00 it's fewer than something more than apple with only 36000000 cell phones sold out. first the brand.
1:22 pm
huawei use is one of the biggest chinese companies it's grown exponentially over the last decade in pretty much every part of telecommunications they're building phones they're building wireless networks they're building all sorts of components and they're one of 4 main suppliers of 5 g. technology which is going to be an evolutionary change in the new world punctuated by technology wars and devoured by geo strategic tensions. at the heart of these new stakes is announced revolution. ultimate weapon developed by way the adventure which is tormenting the west. 5 g. technology. 5 g. promises to change our societies forever a new world of connected objects unmatched power and speed of connections. the 5th
1:23 pm
generation of mobile communication is about to change our lives for better or for worse. the stakes are incredibly high and while way knows that the chinese company is the world leader and it's estimated that it has a 2 year technological advantage over its rivals a good portion of that r. and d. has gone and the 5 g. it's. second factor is that we started doing it earlier than most other companies we started investing in 5 g. and 2000 and. 3 the difference between 4 g. and 5 g. is as wide as between a situ and a ferrari from $2.00 to $3.00 to $4.00 g. improvements were made every time will you dear improvements if you like i don't get it whereas 5 g. is a complete break because it involved brand new technologies eighty's and the americans developed $340.00 and sat on their laurels and they clearly did not suspect that the chinese that understood i mean if you you know. they had lost the battles for
1:24 pm
23 and 4 g. about that and then said ok now we'll invest in 5 g. and gain the advantage. on levels yeah ok i couldn't get it to. so what it is is an industrial robot supported by a very stable high speed high quality 5 g. wireless connection so ordinarily these robots would have cable transmitting power to them and controlling. but these are wireless. what we provide is just the network that allows very high capacity transmission data for stable transmission data which means there's no delay a network that will support many thousands anything millions of connections. was a duty shawntel if when you click on your smartphone today you have what's known as
1:25 pm
lag times. in with 5 g. that doesn't exist anymore when you click the page appears immediately what does this revolution offer realistically and tell me which i thomas vehicles at distance medicine and the internet of things is of it and online real time gaming virtual and augmented reality c section you don't so we're going to see whole sectors of the economy switching to this network to the source and that's why the geopolitical stakes are so high he who dominates it will undoubtedly dominate a large portion of to morrow's economy to continue to. look we have to have he did see an operator equipped with find you can gather data as it passes through its systems will possess a vast amount of information on everything going on your goal should be a hobby if he then uses it for his own benefit then there is a real danger. so we will need to ensure that he can't use it but if
1:26 pm
a government of a certain country were to gather and use it for its own benefit it could pose a big threat to other countries closer to. this is the fear of a number of western countries and that the head of the united states. the american government fears that while away with it cements network could serve as a trojan horse and eventually help the chinese government to spy and gather data. 5 g. networks must be secure there must be strong they have to be guarded from the enemy we do have enemies out there. it's difficult to understand that a telecom network has a heart with lots of little tentacles attendee that gather data if you're at the heart of this network and you have access to all this data you can collect phone numbers addresses consumer information etc so this heart is
1:27 pm
a highly sensitive subject. and a good example would be the african union the african union headquarters was ultimately a gift from the chinese government and all the telecommunications equipment in the african union. headquarters building was provided by the way and it was about 5 years into the operation of this facility the engineers discovered that every night significant volume of traffic was being sent back to china from the network which was presumably everything from audio and video from. the private meetings that were happening to the contents of their file server every night it's not clear that while we had any direct role in the labeling that certainly. could have unilaterally put software in place to do something like that. but large scale as you know is like that is the 2nd concern. of always being used in an
1:28 pm
operational networks police are faced with suspicions and accusations from america the founder and c.e.o. of one way spoke up in percy swearing that he had absolutely no intentions. to your real home and does our company use back doors i can assure you 100 percent you know we do not use back doors church and we are prepared to sign an anti backwards agreement with any government that requests. while weight has always pleaded not guilty demanded proof united states sure that its equipment is ultra securitized. that barely reassures the trumpet ministration which fears on top of espionage
1:29 pm
a large scale cyber attack coming from overseas. robert strang is the deputy assistant secretary of state to cyber and international communications policy. because there's so many more devices on these 5 g. networks there's going to be an expanded attack surface area if you will of ways that actors could seek to undermine our way of life we're also going to have opportunities because there's so much more software going over so much more code there will be also additional points of vulnerability for concern that in china unlike in western democracy there is no ability for a company to object to the commands it receives from the government itself or in china's case from the communist chinese communist party they can't go to an independent court for judicial review to object to it being instructed to acquire data. or to disrupt that critical infrastructure that's going to be created by the
1:30 pm
5 g. networks. by 2025 they could be between 50 and 100000000000 connect you don't get on the. machines and equipment running thanks to find jean and many of them open to attack . if they have access and they have the off switch and suddenly if there's a war if there is a conflict in 2 in the u.s. and china it's the bad case scenario but if huawei is in your network maybe they can shut it down shut down your phones should down your calls shut down your power plants shut down your water infrastructure all these critical things. president johnson signed an executive order on wednesday allowing us to ban foreign telecommunications equipment and service that this is part of the white house the president's commitment to protecting information and cars technology there saying
1:31 pm
that the president here is declaring a state of emergency a national emergency. just this once the u.s. president seems to be backed by a large portion of these countries elected men and women in his face off with well wait and china in the corridors of congress in washington numerous sentences both republicans and democrats fire off rounds of the chinese company with no holding back the major risk is one once you have something built in your communication system that has a back door in it that means whatever's on your cell phone or whatever's in your communication can be intercepted by someone else and so people want their cell phone communication to be protective a don't want to be public they don't want some other foreign entity whether it be an individual our general or foreign nation and what actions to your data well i think wall way is a security threat not just the united states but to france to the west so i think it's very important that allies. around the world. recognize that this
1:32 pm
is a long term security threat. the united states allies are also beginning to banish the chinese giant straight to plan and now new zealand. i'm naturally donald trump's blacklisting is harming wildlife financially. its international smartphone sales have fallen 40 percent in 2 months. so cooling down what the americans are forbidding is access to gas that the big 5 of google apple facebook amazon and microsoft set up. and they put it will cause problems for wall ways because if they want to find a route they won't have access to google maps if they want to video no you tube they want to send an e-mail no g. mail anymore they want to send a message to friends on facebook they don't have it anymore all of these services
1:33 pm
are de facto excluded from one way smartphones even for the way. in china that doesn't really matter because google is not allowed to while away sells about half of its phone somewhere else a lot of them are sold in europe and some of the phones are some of the best phones in the world right now some of the best phones for the money but now a lot of customers will think well wait a 2nd if i can have all these google applications right the go go after or google maps g.-mail google drive then i'm going to go ahead and buy another brand. for donald trump attack in what way is another means of putting pressure on china of destabilizing a competitor with a commercial shoulder strength. or a long period of time china has taken advantage of our cut $375000000000.00 in trade deficit came about year after year we don't want that now. fair or not right.
1:34 pm
for that's if i have no idea why donald trump is so intent on waging war on while way we have several theories. one is that he doesn't want foreign technology notably while ways to be better than america's technology ali that sees will be one just a 2nd is that what ways technology is so advanced and so secure it would prevent the united states from spying on its own people and on other countries audition away if that's a valid comment about. as made confronting china on trade a major issue for his administration and i think the waterway. problem is part of that if wall way was located in brazil if it was an indian company if it was a european company nobody would care but because it's part of the storage or
1:35 pm
picture of aggressive china a china that uses predatory trade practices and a china that is now the leading source of espionage against the united states put all that together and they've decided to go after them. you could imagine this company's great destiny. how is it grown so quickly to become emblematic of an entire nation in time in its history. when one was founded in 1907 china was in full growth. 10 years beforehand the new leader thing shopping had launched his great modernization reforms with a single objective to elevate china to the rank of a world superpower. today's
1:36 pm
china is entering a new phase here we are now focusing our efforts on the modernization of farming and industry science and technology along with national defense so we can we do our country in a typically chinese way. in the 1980 s. when huawei was born when it was just getting started and. the chinese market economy was also in just getting started so the chinese government in beijing which is thousands of miles away in the north of china decided you know we're going to have a few cities where we're going to try out capitalism and we're going to try out in very small steps the chinese leader at the time a little small man named them shell king said we're going to just do trial. we're going to cross the river is by feeling for the stones. among the places chosen to test chinese style capitalism was shenzhen a small fishing village
1:37 pm
a stone's throw from hong kong. it was there that while we was founded. if the reforms put in place by deng xiaoping were very progressive it started with agriculture and giving farmers the opportunity to own some of their land and yields started to skyrocket 20. 8 months or so after that he extended them to industry was going to be a. people in them began to think you know i can make some money i can become a company it was a change if you had a private sector it didn't exist before well it wasn't really totally represents the rise of the economy of china a country that no longer produces a low cost products and also the end of plastic objects and textiles made in china it now represents china as a technological power a force of innovation investing in r. and d. and that's why while way is the chinese symbol.
1:38 pm
way has created $160000.00 jobs worldwide and posts a record turnover of $100000000000.00 because it has discreetly taken advantage of china's opening up to the global markets. by the way was founded by mr van with a mere $21000.00 u.n. about $5000.00 at the time and a handful of employees there was a huge need for telecommunications on the chinese market because nothing existed so he sees the opportunity. rendering for the founder and big boss in what way. the embodiment of chinese ambition and success. wrenching for a visionary. warlord. these military past with the chinese people's liberation army is at the heart of the west's fears on the current trade war.
1:39 pm
we do know that the founder has a military past so he was with the people's liberation army at the start reportedly news reports suggest that they had an early contract with the people's liberation army so that they might have helped them was becoming a contractor with the chinese government and the chinese military. there's a significant concern that the people's liberation army the p l a could use those connections to either get access to walk away equipment worthwhile way source code or have the ability to insert malware and while a product. or something for the eastern man served in the engineering corps of an army with millions of soldiers so if you follow the logic of our detractors it means that these millions of people are still closely linked to the chinese government and militia what else can i say to prove
1:40 pm
that mr wrenn has no such links he's just an ex army engineer who became something else once his tour of duty was over the west should be able to understand that while ways history shows that it's the product of a china which has reformed and opened up in order to strengthen competitiveness and bring prosperity to the chinese economy so that it can enter into global markets how the. well wait also promotes itself as being a totally private company. gets 0 shares owned by the chinese state. our founders owns about 1.4 percent of the shares so the company is almost completely run by our 90000 employees decent media i'll tell you that's very rare in china i'm also. shareholder albeit a very small world but every year the dividend is shared out among us all.
1:41 pm
to demonstrate its technological lead while weight exceptionally allowed us into its laboratories in warehouses in southern china. they stretch out as far as the eye can see. these immense concrete hangers spew out thousands of brand new smartphones ready for export across the globe. to enter special clothing simply to drink the phones are assembled on the last section of the production lines 30 hours is required to manufacture a single unit. for a few employees most of the work being performed by robots. beyond the production lines the true pride of the chinese brand is hidden on either side of these corridors. and austere and mysterious mood reigns to these are the labs of the well the research and development center. this engineer
1:42 pm
for example is developing 5 g. and 10 i capable of withstanding the worst weather conditions. to disprove the world office of these last ones at home but it's a common culti. and this is what. the water want to get accumulated on the surface so while we are developing this technology as you know that. just signal is a millimeter wave it's transmission abilities kind of weak soul when. used especially some called bases you know for us even though it's also kind of called it may be crowded with a 6 layer i was not we developed this. she called in technologist to stop water ice accumulation on the surface so there was b.s. to claim that. there. is a company which has filed the most patents in the world 5428
1:43 pm
a record that's twice as many as mitsubishi and intel who trail in 2nd and 3rd place inventions dreamed up by young scientists like the 32 year old tundra 2 which were developed following further studies in germany saying chloe is the 1st team to use the weaver chamber because now other companies are using it has we are this is a plan for them inside it's just a job it's water so especially where you play games you can feel your interest in temperature into corners. to get where it is while we started out like many chinese companies drawing on western inventions through forced technology transfers. versal a company wanting to operate in china must surrender its patents and transfer them
1:44 pm
to the chinese. 7 or levy don't need we've seen this in aeronautics and in manufacturing you're obliged to transfer your patents and explain your manufacturing processes of it is what's more china also obliges you to help build their plants and set up the whole process from a to z. a little. illegal practice for sure but one to which all too often copies and even theft of intellectual property already. showing them to trick is a bit like the original sin of all chinese companies while we store. it by copying the big western brands even at the origin of their base products which were network components was on high so i spoke with an engineer alcatel who told me they
1:45 pm
discovered products they're identical to there is in china. chinese aircraft manufacturing china's high speed train which looks very much like a german high speed train it's part of how they built their industry stealing technology has been part of china's opening to the west since the beginning when shopping said china would now open its markets to the west. in the u.s. and bailed weeping charges against chinese tech giant huawei on monday formally accusing the company and its affiliates of stealing trade secrets to keep tightness a while away employees undertook a scheme to steal t. mobile's robotic technology mean tapi employees allegedly took numerous unauthorized photographs of tapping and secretly removed part of it from
1:46 pm
a laboratory in washington state. all sets of charges expose was always brazen and persistent actions to exploit american companies and financial institutions and to threaten the free and fair global marketplace. while it has a bad track record when it comes to intellectual property a great example of this is the pending lawsuit between the us government and walked away around a team mobile testing robot called api and tapi is a device that is used to test smartphones. they stole a robot arm during the visit and gave it back the next day with an apology as if they had left with the arm by accident and 24 hours later suddenly realized they had it only what's this doing here made all you already did maybe i'm exaggerating
