The U.S. government’s ban on Huawei took effect less than a month ago. According to Japanese media reports, recently, Sony and Kaixia (formerly Toshiba storage company) have applied to the US Department of Commerce to continue supplying Huawei. But as of the 3rd, their application has not been approved. Japan’s Asahi Shimbun reported on the 4th that Sony and Kayama have stopped supplying to China since the US ban on semiconductor exports to Huawei took effect on September 15th. But Huawei is a key customer of the two companies, and without the U.S. license, both Sony and armored face the risk of deteriorating revenue prospects. It is reported that the main business of Jiaxia company is semiconductor memory business. As its related business is mainly related to smart phones, it has a lot of business for Huawei. Nearly 80% of the sales of “image sensor” semiconductors developed by Sony come from the smartphone business. It is reported that the annual transaction volume between Sony and Huawei can reach hundreds of billions of yen. On September 15, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s ban on chip upgrades against Huawei and its subsidiaries took effect. According to the ban issued by the U.S. government, since September 15, no chip developed or produced based on us software or technology can be supplied to Huawei unless there is a special license. However, this “ban” of the US side has made many international enterprises complain secretly. The Japanese Economic News reported on September 16 that Japanese enterprises’ export of spare parts was affected by a scale of 1 trillion yen (about 0.065 yuan). According to the calculation of South Korean semiconductor industry, the annual loss of South Korean semiconductor industry will reach 10 trillion won (about 57.6 billion yuan) when the ban on exporting Huawei lasts for more than one year. In response to the U.S. Ministry of Commerce’s further escalation of the ban on Huawei, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian previously said that China firmly opposes the United States deliberately discrediting and suppressing Chinese enterprises such as Huawei. For some time, the US side, without any concrete evidence, has generalized the concept of national security, abused state power and adopted various restrictive measures against Chinese enterprises such as Huawei. This is a blatant hegemonic act. It must be stressed that what the United States has done has thoroughly pierced the veil of the market economy and fair competition principle, violated international trade rules, and destroyed the global industrial chain, supply chain and value chain, which will certainly damage the national interests and self-image of the United States.
