DPP voices concern over Huawei equipment use in Taiwan

Thursday 12 April 2012 | 03:08 CET | News
According to Taiwanese Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislators, national security is at risk due to operators procuring equipment from China's Huawei Technologies. DPP legislators Pan Men-an and Cheng Li-chiun argued that many Taiwanese operators, including Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan Mobile, Far EasTone Telecommunications (FET), and Asia Pacific Telecom, have purchased base stations and core systems from Huawei. These procurements could lead to personal information on Taiwanese citizens being exposed to the Chinese government, Pan and Cheng said. "Huawei has widely pervaded Taiwan, but the National Security Bureau, the Mainland Affairs Council and the National Communications Commission are still in the dark," The Taipei Times quotes Cheng as saying. An NCC official confirmed that local operators are using Huawei base stations and core equipment but added that Huawei cannot establish a branch company in Taiwan or invest in the country, in accordance with local regulations.
