EU Commission issues “5G toolbox”, allowing Huawei in 5G rollout

The European Union yesterday issued a set of guidelines, referred to as the “5G toolbox”, and allowed Huawei to continue participating in Europe’s 5G roll.

In a Huawei media statement following the publication of the European Commission’s 5G toolbox, Abraham Liu, Huawei Chief Representative to the EU Institutions, commented: "Huawei welcomes Europe’s decision, which enables Huawei to continue participating in Europe’s 5G roll-out. This non-biased and fact-based approach towards 5G security allows Europe to have a more secure and faster 5G network.

“Huawei has been present in Europe for almost 20 years and has a proven track record with regard to security. We will continue to work with European governments and industry to develop common standards to strengthen the security and reliability of the network," added Liu.
