British think tank Oxford Economics recently published a research report on Huawei's contribution to Japan's economy, stating that the Chinese company directly and indirectly created about 46,400 jobs in Japan and contributed taxes of JPY208 billion to the Japanese central and local governments in 2018.
The report also showed that during the year of 2018, Huawei's economic activities contributed JPY766 billion to Japan's GDP, which was six times of that in 2014.
In October 2019, Huawei's founder and president Ren Zhengfei said during a media interview that he travelled to Japan a lot and he liked ramen. He said that China and Japan had their respective advantages and they could create quality products with cooperation. Huawei invested a lot of money in Japan and would enhance cooperation with Japanese companies.
Ren emphasized that Huawei would still rely on global development.
