Some brand names become so strongly associated with their countries of origin, they will rise and fall with their country's reputation. Take Ikea as an example. Furniture giant is based on the English values, but of the 237 yellow and blue stores sells a positive image of sweden abroad. They are just as important for Sweden, as for our less than a hundred embassies in the world.
Zara Larsson recently made a recognized, their apologies to their public relations-cooperation, the chinese telecoms company, Huawei. With the rise of Hong kong's consumer product safety act, and the treatment of the muslim population in Xinjiang, she admits that ”it is not the slickest deal,” she has done, then we can never disprove (or prove) that Huawei is part of the government.
the secret service will assess the
the Security questions, you will rarely be asked at the disco-starlets, but in Zara, the highlights still the problem. Huawei is the most internationalized among all technology companies in China. The contrast will be striking when it is compared to the Huawei, with its competitor, SAMSUNG, which, indeed, is a state-owned company with a military origin.
Still, the planned new restrictions on the operation of the two companies in 20 of the 27 EU member states. In Sweden will the Swedish security service and the armed Forces in the future to make an assessment as to whether the chinese, the 5G technology will be used. Mobile operators are also increasingly concerned about the delays on the Huawei are affected by the controls, and the imposition of sanctions.
in China's most western-oriented business is a risk, yes, then it is, of course, the entire country is at risk. Perhaps this is why the chinese people to see, decisions to be taken by france. They also believe that the communist party does not act strongly against the ”home” of the Hong kong citizens, or people who they see as terrorists in the country's periphery.
a New law
But in Sweden and in the EU countries, the care is not linked to human rights, to racism, to do that. China has recently passed a new law that forces all chinese companies and citizens to hand over all the data, or the monitoring of ”communication tools” as the government calls it.
as early as a few months after the new law came into force, in regards to a Huawei manager in Poland and to break into the intranet of the Polish minister. The company is suspended immediately for the accused, and asserted his innocence, and that may be the case.
We can only hope that China will reform its underrätelselagstiftning – not least of all for What the sake of
Regardless of What any intervention, so, the situation is that the law affects companies that are overseas chinese with access to sensitive information.
and, of Course, there are also clear parallels to the U.S.'s signals intelligence. He faces a series of revelations in 2013, forcing president barack Obama to a series of reforms that limited the signalspaningens the scale and put it under stricter democratic control. All non-EU citizens were given the right to sue the u.s. government before the court of justice for illegal surveillance, Everything in order to win back Europe's trust.
the Hope of the reform of
Then, as now, the united states and the chinese-owned company of the victims, who have to comply with the laws of their country of origin. So, Zara Larsson, to ask if the Huawei is a good thing or a bad company, becomes a secondary consideration. Just like the USA, so China is thinking about its legislation and the European standards are high: In the last few days, the EUROPEAN court of justice's reforms to be insufficient.
mobile Networks are not only increasingly important but also more vulnerable. They are linking more and more industries and public services. 5G store not only the data on the how – to-run control of the entire vehicle. The insight gained in China to the phasing out of the foreign applications, and technologies (including finland's Nokia) in order to achieve total ”safety " and control”. China has grown into the world's largest ICT market, but is surrounded still by the world's highest trade barriers.
In Sweden, and Europe does not need the state to achieve control. However, the trust remains a sine qua non for the opening of world trade. We can only hope that China will reform its underrätelselagstiftning – not least of all for What the sake of. < / span> < / span>
