President Donald Trump's chief technology officer (CTO) Michael Kratsios urged European countries to join the US in "taking a stand" against Chinese companies like Huawei as they try to dominate the 5G next-gen wireless networks and artificial intelligence (AI) markets.

Facing US ban, Huawei emerging as stronger tech competitor SHENZHEN, China (AP) — Long before President Donald Trump threatened to cut off Huawei's access to U.S. technology, the Chinese telecom equipment maker was pouring money into research that reduces its need for American suppliers. Huawei's founder says instead of crippling the company, the export curbs are making it a tougher competitor, forcing managers to focus resources on their most important products. Little-known to Americans, Huawei Technologies Ltd. is the No. 2 smartphone brand. It's also the biggest maker of switching gear for phone networks. Its equipment is used by 45 of the 50 biggest global phone carriers.

Kratsios, who became US CTO in August, highlighted an alleged instance of spying.

"In perhaps the most disturbing account of espionage news outlets have reported after Huawei installed communications technology equipment at the headquarters of the African Union, their computer system was hacked and data was transferred to servers in Shanghai, every single night for five years," he said, referring to a 2018 report from Le Monde.
