Huawei says Bangalore manufacturing base is on track: report
Huawei Technologies said its first US$60 million manufacturing base in Bangalore was going ahead, denying the expansion plan could be derailed due to Indian government security concerns.
Huawei Telecommunications India Corp spokesman Gong Wenhe rejected media reports that the company's plan to build the plant had worried Indian authorities because of purported links with the Chinese military and business ties with Pakistan. He said there had been
misunderstandings by the media.
What is being considered by the Indian government is a trading licence, not the Bangalore manufacturing centre, he said. A trading licence would allow foreign investors such as Huawei to directly supply its
telecommunications equipment products to local operators.
