On May 16, 2019, one of the largest tech companies in the world made its way onto the United States’ ‘Entity List.’ Huawei, a Chinese telecommunications giant, was effectively restricted from doing business with any U.S. company. In one fell swoop, one of the leading multinational technology companies and major players in the 5G arena -- not to mention the second largest smartphone maker in the world -- was blacklisted from the entire U.S. market. The President’s latest move to reverse the ban may lead to an initial reprieve, but it’s likely that we’ll be going down this road again.
