Huawei Technologies has managed to secure more than 25 commercial contracts for 5G, a slight increase from the 22, announced earlier in November. "We think any concerns or allegations on security at Huawei should be based on factual evidence", rotating chairman Ken Hu was quoted as saying.
Huawei's 2018 revenue, he said, was expected to exceed US$100 billion.
In late November, New Zealand's intelligence agency barred Huawei from participating in its 5G development, citing "significant national security risks".
"This is not putting the focus on how to improve and ideal the technology, but is speculation targeting specific companies out of political considerations", Hu said.
Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer and the daughter of its founder, faces USA allegations that she misled multinational banks about Iran-linked transactions, putting the banks at risk of violating US sanctions.
Hu said the Oversight Board in the United Kingdom had pointed out that the company needed to improve its software engineering capabilities and practices.
Hu was asked to clarify the company's stance on growing concerns from worldwide governments about China's influence on Huawei and potential to access illicit information.
Hu emphasized that Security is Huawei's highest priority and it overarches everything. A number of countries have moved to ban the company from selling its equipment there, while operators including BT, SoftBank and Deutsche Telekom are reportedly reconsidering the use of Huawei equipment for 5G.

China has taken a "rob, replicate and replace approach to economic development" in stealing intellectual property from companies in the US and other countries, Demers said.

"For Huawei, our approach is to address these issues in strict accordance to the law".
