Huawei shows how China is indispensable to Britain's future

By Tom Harper | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-02-14 00:00

The British government's decision to permit Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei a limited role in the construction of Britain's 5G infrastructure has been an unexpected watershed for Britain's foreign and domestic affairs in the lead up to its departure from the European Union.

This decision has been a significant victory for Huawei in the face of a global pressure campaign waged by the US government seeking to cajole its allies into banning the firm based on the grounds of national security.

While the decision has come as an unexpected outcome, what is beyond doubt is that Britain's relationship with China is a significant factor in Britain's post-Brexit foreign relations. It is also decisions like these that will become the new normal in the future as Britain needs to effectively chart its path through an ever-evolving world.
