Microsoft is now licensed to do business with Huawei again
Microsoft has gained approval from the current US administration to sell to the OEM Huawei again. This news may have come as a relief to the Chinese electronics giant, whose supplier base has reportedly atrophied following sanctions imposed on it that prevent it working with American firms such as Qualcomm and Intel.
On the other hand, the Redmond software behemoth has not specified which of its products have been cleared for sale to Huawei again. Its new license, as opposed to the temporary general trade-ban waiver that may expire soon, was granted on November 20, 2019.
The US authorities have stated that it has received applications for similar licenses to sell to Huawei from approximately 300 companies to date. However, of these, only 25% of these US organizations have had Microsoft's success in gaining approval to deal with this company.
