The US obsession with Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies may be well-intentioned, but could end up seriously harming the country's economy and national security, a senior adviser and trustee chair in Chinese Business and Economics at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Washington DC, says, in an article written as a brief for the Centre and sent to subscribers of The China Wire website in its weekly email titled "What we're reading this week".

There have been many discussions centred around the possibility that China may try to retake Taiwan and speculation as to the likely American reaction, but hardly any consideration has been given to the fact that even a failed bid by Beijing would have a massive effect on the American reliance on Taiwan's semiconductor manufacturers.

If we are to believe the excuse being trotted out by the UK for changing its stance on the use of gear from Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies in its 5G networks, then semiconductors made by one company are not as safe as those made by another company – though they are all made to the same specs.
