Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei said revelations of National Security Agency (NSA) spying on his company wasn't a big surprise, and is confident that customers will continue to show the Chinese tech giant support moving forward.

"This monitoring behavior of the United States is within expectations," Zhengfei told reporters. "It has just been proved. The business we are doing with our customers is built on a mutual understanding between our customers and ourselves over the last two to three decades. Therefore, those things going on will not, I believe, have any impact on doing business with us."

 

Considering the U.S. government's suspicions that Huawei is under heavy Chinese government influence, companies such as Nokia Siemens, Alcatel-Lucent, and Ericsson have found success. However, Huawei has over 140,000 employees, and more than 20 research and development firms worldwide - making it a valuable asset for many telecommunication companies.
