A Strategic Assessment of Huawei into the Fast Future

Denise Tsang, David Luigi Fuschi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter explores the impact of the Trump Administration’s sanction on the most controversial company in the world—Huawei. It first discusses the firm-specific and country-specific advantages underpinning the strengths and opportunities of Huawei. It then elaborates Huawei’s business within the context of China’s ascendancy in the new world order, followed by the liability of foreignness that has shaped Huawei’s predicament. Huawei has been forced to stand to fight for its survival for the first time in its corporate history. But could a relatively smaller company prevail among the global technology giants? Tsang and Fuschi discuss Huawei’s crisis management, which is a characteristic of Chinese business and suggests that the Plan B has enabled it to prepare for the worst-case trade-related scenario.
