China, in its global ambition, seeks to control the latest in technology. Huawei has been the forefront fighter of China’s 5G plan. Together, they want to dominate the global 5G movement, and in turn, make China the strongest in the world. That was the plan until the United States banned its activities and destroyed its influence—for now. If Huawei’s sudden rise surprises you, then it’s time to learn about its careful infiltration into the Western world through low bidding contract offers and massive inner workings alongside the Chinese Communist Party.
