Today China’s rivalry with the West is focused on the fate of one Chinese group, symbol of the bold success of the post-Maoist economy and sign of Beijing’s global ambition: Huawei. How did this tech giant present in 170 countries with over 200 million phones sold last year become the West’s biggest bugbear? The “Huawei affair” is the latest illustration of China’s rise to power and the world’s attempts to grapple with it. Technology theft, trade wars and espionage--just some of the issues accompanying the company’s meteoric rise--have shuffled the geopolitical deck, making China “public enemy number one” for Western economies.
