Understanding the Conflicts Behind the Arrest of Huawei's CFO in Canada
The arrest of Huawei's CFO in Canada has raised a lot of concern. I was not clear what the charges are, and there seem to be many conflicting stories about how this situation should be approached by all parties. It seems like one side is trying to undermine the other from doing business outside its borders, but at the same time another country might want to protect its own people against espionage risks that come with using Chinese technology products in sensitive industries. The conflict here is between protecting national security and ensuring economic development, but also keeping an eye on new technologies being developed which could potentially disrupt everything we know today when it comes to tech innovation. There may be very different opinions among governments as well as citizens when it comes to this. I wanted to know, so I'm talking to Warren Vincent, a global banking expert, to learn the conflict and how it affects future business and investments.
