Everything that happened to Huawei while you slept

Huawei's West European CFO, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested last weekend in Canada on behalf of the United States, and the incident came into focus after the arrest on Wednesday night became public. Meng was arrested for allegedly violating US sanctions against Iran, but we will not officially hear the charges until their hearing today in Vancouver.

China has demanded the immediate release of Meng while American businessmen are warned not to travel there. It's a fast moving story that attracts everyone's attention, from bankers on Wall Street to Silicon Valley technologists. But what happens next? We have a summary of everything you have missed during your sleep.

Executives in the tech industry are cautioned against traveling to China, as some experts speculate that the Chinese government might avenge the arrest of Huawei Meng. 46-year-old Meng, sometimes called Sabrina or Cathy, is not just Huawei's chief financial officer. She is also the daughter of founder Ren Zhengfei, who is closely associated with the People's Liberation Army (People's Liberation Army), the name of the Chinese armed forces.

Shaun Rein from the China Market Research Group today told the Sydney Morning Herald, "If I were high level exec at Google or Cisco I would not visit China so soon. "

Bill Bishop, author of the Asia-centered newsletter Sinocism, seems to believe that China wants to arrest an American executive, but lays hold of the potential for arrest anyway:

I've seen speculation that China might take revenge if it arrested a US tech executive. That would certainly be explosive, but I am not sure if Beijing would do so without a very clear litigation, as this would undermine the massive propaganda campaign the party has undertaken to make the PRC open to international business and defending global trade to represent system. If I was an American tech manager, I would delay the trip to China or go on vacation if he were resident there.

I think takeaway is if you are an American businessman going to China, you know the risks now. And it's probably not worth it until things have calmed down.
