US imposes curbs on Huawei

The US government is imposing new restrictions on Chinese tech giant Huawei by limiting its ability to use American technology to build its semiconductors. The Commerce Department said on Friday the move aims to cut off Huawei’s undermining of existing US sanctions.

The new restriction is separate from an ongoing Trump administration reprieve on US technology sales to Huawei. The US government blacklisted the Chinese tech company a year ago, deeming it a national security risk, but the limited reprieve allows wireless companies to keep offering service in remote parts of the US.
