At this unique event, he fielded questions from MEPs, and journalists on topics ranging from 5G, cyber-security, Artificial Intelligence, the global supply chain, and trade issues.

In his opening remarks, Liu said: “During my time in Europe I’ve been most impressed by the European values of openness, and advocacy of multilateralism – an alliance of many countries pursuing a common goal – which is a cornerstone in this challenging geo-politico environment. “

“Europe’s values ….have led to it being a powerhouse in mobile communications – and Huawei shares these values….which will help Europe continue to be a leader in the 5G era.”
