According to a Reuters article, China has warned India not to block Huawei from doing business in the country, warning there could be consequences for Indian firms operating in China.
Part of the warning comes as India is holding trials for a 5G networking in the upcoming months and has not yet determined whether they will invite Huawei to take part in the rollout of 5G in India.
The Reuters article says Indian companies do not have a larger presence in China, but do have manufacturing, healthcare, financial services and outsourcing companies there.
India is currently evaluating bids from 5G firms such as Ericcson, Nokia, Samsung and officials have not yet confirmed Huawei will take part. The Indian Department of Telecommunications have found no evidence of Huawei capabilities of a backdoor or malware to collect data and the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs has issued no directive to curtail Huawei’s entry.
