The United States has extended the temporary license for American companies to do business with Huawei by ninety days. Wilbur Ross, the American minister of Economic Affairs, announced this on Monday.
The US Department of Commerce allowed US companies with a temporary license to do business with Huawei until August 19, after the Chinese telecom and smartphone company was placed on a sanction list.
The extension means that companies can continue to do business with Huawei until November 17. This means that Huawei can maintain its network equipment, but also that Huawei smartphones can continue to be provided with software updates.
