Huawei Gets Another 90-Day Extension Before the U.S. Ban Takes Effect

November 19, 2019 8:15 am

The U.S. Department of Commerce announced Monday it will extend a license for 90 days for certain U.S. companies to continue working with the Chinese telecom giant Huawei.

The extension of the Temporary General License has a very narrow range and allows "specific, limited engagements in transactions" involving U.S. businesses and Huawei, which has been blacklisted for national security reasons after critics said its equipment could be used by China for spying.

“The Temporary General License extension will allow carriers to continue to service customers in some of the most remote areas of the United States who would otherwise be left in the dark,” Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross said in a statement Monday.
