Chinese officials said they can block Indian firms operating in China. This can be seen as blackmailing for India as it was believed that after getting banned in China. India will be next to put a ban on Chinese Tech Giant from its upcoming 5G infrastructure.

Trade Tension

If talking about Indian Firms they not dependent on china market due to a very limited presence in the country as compared to other major economies.

Also, the matter can also spark up the tension again between both nations. 

As long disputes over territorial disputes and making high-level efforts to build cooperation and coordination.  

Security Concerns

No other names were disclosed but it is believed that companies like Nokia that comes from Finland or Samsung from South Korea will also participate. These Hi Profile companies can easily wipe out the Huawei from the race. 

A high-level delegation led by Principal Scientific Advisor of Indian Government is looking into the matter to make a decision on excluding Huawei from taking part in 5G trials in the country. Till the date, the delegation hasn’t found any clue on Huawei using an alternative program or any malware. That means they haven’t used any mechanism for collecting data till the date. 

Safeguard Taken

An opinion from the National Security Advisory Board that it must ensure that hardware and software for the upcoming 5G network. Must not be sourced from a single company. The government is trying to get wireless carriers that will use country made software. This will operate the sourced equipment for 5G to run the service. 

Conclusion

That’s all for now, Folks I hope you like the information shared above and will refer this with your friends and family members. As far as my opinion is concerned countries must tightly check the equipment as they are associated with communication technology. As it is such a sensitive matter and mercilessly spy on the country. These things simply weaken the security and integration of the country. Do you find china using back doors to become a superpower? Mention your opinion in the comment box below.
