Since the start of the trade war between US-China, one company which suffered the most amount of loss is Huawei. Huawei, which is a Chinese Tech giant company, got a significant market in the Smartphone industry more quickly than US-based companies. However, since the Trump organisation decided to start a trade war, this company suffered massive amounts of losses because of it. Ren Zhengfei, who is the Founder and Co-chairman of the company, said in a recent interview that he is a puppet leader of Huawei.
Ren said that he would like to be called a spiritual leader than a good founder or chairman of the company. Since the beginning of the trade war, Huawei had become an excellent target for US administration. They brought up some evidence which shows this company allegedly transferring data of its customers to the Chinese government. Ren Zhengfei earlier never gave an interview until his daughter got arrested at the airport of China by US officials accusing her of involvement in a fraud case. The tension between the Huawei company and US administration went to the high level. Because of which the Founder had to give a public interview stating his point of view.
Many experts believe that Ren’s contribution to the Tech giant company is enormous because he is confident and uniquely leading the company for a long time. However, Ren recently said in an interview that he is just a puppet later because the company is managed by other co-founders also and he acts as a symbol leader only. The question about Ren’s leadership of being only a puppet leader might be essential for US officials who are investigating Huawei. But since the trade war has mostly affected this tech giant company, the Coronavirus outbreak will be making things worse for it.
