Exclusive: vice-president Victor Zhang says north-south divide in England would be exacerbated by missing out on 5G
The UK should revisit its decision to ban the Chinese telecom equipment maker Huawei from the 5G network in the post-Trump era and recognise it will worsen the north-south divide, the vice-president of Huawei told the Guardian.
Victor Zhang’s intervention comes as Boris Johnson prepares on Monday to meet the Northern Research Group, the lobby group of Conservative MPs determined to turn the prime minister’s levelling up agenda into a reality. Zhang urges the UK to stay true to its roots as the birthplace of the first industrial revolution, saying the government cannot afford to fall behind in the 5G revolution.
