According to reports, the above-mentioned executive order is based on the International Emergency Economic Power Act, which gives the President of the United States supervision of commercial activities in response to a national emergency that poses a threat to the United States.
On the other hand, people familiar with the matter said that the US Department of Commerce is expected to renew the license that will expire on the 15th, allowing US companies to continue doing business with Huawei.
According to reports, Huawei is the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the world and a major telecommunications equipment company providing 5G network technology. The U.S. Department of Commerce has extended the temporary license period many times before, and has previously extended it to April 1.
In March, the U.S. Department of Commerce sought public opinion on whether the license should be extended in the future, and asked how the companies and organizations where the U.S. public would be affected if the temporary general license was not extended. The Ministry of Commerce also asked about the costs associated with ending the license.
In response, CTIA urged the US Department of Commerce to approve a "long-term" extended license.
The association said, "The continued and limited use of Huawei to protect the safety of market equipment and devices can reduce the risk of damage to US consumer devices, thereby benefiting them."
The association also requested the Ministry of Commerce to “restore and revise its previous authorization for standards development work to allow communication with Huawei to promote the development of global telecommunications standards.”
