US Justice Dept Charges Huawei

Last week, the U.S. Justice Department has filed charges against tech giant Huawei alleging they have, among other things, violated the Iran Sanctions, stolen industrial secrets of American carrier T-Mobile and obstructed a criminal investigation. The Chinese telecom company is the biggest supplier of phone and internet network equipment in the world and is the second biggest cellphone producer. The indictments come two months after Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou, who is also daughter of the company’s founder, was arrested in Canada. China's foreign ministry yesterday called on the U.S. and Canada to release Wanzhou. The timing coincides with top officials from China holding a two days of trade talks with the Trump Administration in Washington. Host Dan Loney talks with Jacque DeLisle, a Professor of Law and Professor of Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania, Director of the Center for East Asian Studies, and Deputy Director of the Center for the Study of Contemporary China, and Richard Dasher, the Director of the U.S.-Asia Technology Management Center at Stanford University, to discuss how this case might play out on Knowledge@Wharton.
