Chinese officials lobby Australia to reverse Huawei 5G ban
Chinese government officials are lobbying their Australian counterparts to reverse the ban of Huawei’s equipment in national 5G networks.
A ban of the equipment was implemented by ex-Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull, who was ousted earlier this year. Chinese officials have praised his replacement, Scott Morrison, for a more “positive attitude” towards China.
Beijing is hoping to capitalise on this more positive attitude in order to get the ban on Chinese telecoms equipment reversed.
