The CCCEU position on EU and member states enforcing 5G security toolbox

source:CCCEU 2020-07-09 13:06

The China Chamber of Commerce to the EU and its members are increasingly perturbed about the strategic  and technical  measures taken by some EU  member states in recently  enforcing the 5Gsecurity toolbox following an administrative directive of the European Commission.

Instead of using evidence-based  technical criteria, some EU  member countries  have targeted technology suppliers from non-EU countries and even listed them as high-risk. It is unacceptable to divide the businesses in Europe into EU or non-EU groups  based on their origination of parent company and use it as a criteria of market access.

Some of our members and their partners have serious complaints because the actions have led to mounting uncertainties  and a threat to their existence in European markets. We are also quite concerned that the approach on 5G security  by the EU, will further  have seriously  negative consequences on the market and the investment ecosystem.

Due to great progress, we are proud of the many excellent Chinese multinationals  which are contributing to global prosperity by offering vast employment opportunities. They are no different from the American, European, Asian or African businesses.  For example,  Huawei and ZTE, two leading Chinese 5G equipment  providers  have created  about 20,000 direct jobs in Europe and those indirect jobs amount up to 300,000.

To achieve the combined 5G goals of ensuring absolute security, maintaining competitiveness and promoting  the sustainability  and diversity of the 5G  supply and value chain in EU  digital transformation, the EU can move fast and far with China, given its tech-sophistication, long-term partnership  between Chinese and European  market  players, massive and deep penetration  in modern economy, and China’s openness in future R&D with the EU.
