The king of change? The United States decided to postpone the US sales license for US companies

On August 9, according to Bloomberg News, as China decided to stop buying US agricultural products, the US government decided to postpone the application for permission to restart US businesses and Huawei.

During the Sino-US trade negotiations, as a friendly gesture, the Chinese government has repeatedly used one-time transactions to purchase US agricultural products. The most recent was at the end of June, when China agreed to buy 544,000 tons of soybeans from the United States, worth $200 million.

However, at the beginning of this month, US President Trump announced that the United States will begin to impose a 10% tariff on the remaining 300 billion US dollars of goods and products from China starting on September 1. Therefore, China decided to stop purchasing US agricultural products.

Last month, US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross said that the US Department of Commerce will issue licenses to Huawei's US suppliers without jeopardizing US national security.

Soon after, Trump held meetings with CEOs of Intel, Qualcomm, Google, Micron, Cisco, Broadcom and Western Digital, and agreed to ask the Ministry of Commerce to approve the license to sell products to Huawei. "Timely" authorization.

As of July 24, the US Department of Commerce said it has received more than 50 applications from 35 US companies for licensing licenses to Huawei. "We will handle them very quickly and we are expected to make a final decision in the next few weeks," Ross said.

It is understood that Xilinx and Micron and other US companies have publicly stated that they have applied for a license to ship to Huawei and called on the United States to allow them to resume business with Huawei. They believe that many of their products, Huawei, are easily purchased from other overseas competitors, which makes the ban ineffective and harmful to the industry.

The attitude of the United States toward Huawei has changed many times. After listing Huawei on the entity list, on May 21, US officials decided to delay the ban on Huawei for 90 days until mid-August, on the grounds that Huawei and its business partners need time to upgrade the software. And dealing with some contractual obligations.

On the G20, Trump has promised to allow US companies to continue selling products to Huawei. However, the US Department of Commerce soon said that it is necessary to issue licenses to Huawei's US suppliers without jeopardizing US national security.
