Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei reportedly urged the Chinese technology giant’s team to transform the company into a major software force as a way to alleviate the impact of devastating US sanctions.

in an internal memo seen by Reuters, Ren says Huawei must focus on software because the industry is “out of the control of the United States and we will have greater independence and autonomy.”

Huawei is currently unable to mass produce many of its hardware products because of sanctions that prohibit US companies from doing business with it.

The company has stockpiled chips and components in an attempt to mitigate sanctions, but reserves are limited and, in some cases, will quickly become obsolete. Huawei is also barred from using Google’s apps and services on its smartphones.

The Biden government has not suggested it will reverse any of the Trump-era sanctions, although the US has softened its moves against other Chinese companies such as Xiaomi and TikTok.

Because of this climate, Ren told employees that Huawei should focus on software, including MindSpore, its cloud AI platform, and its HarmonyOS operating system for multiple devices.

The company is planning to compete in key markets beyond the United States.

“Once we dominate Europe, Asia-Pacific and Africa, if US standards don’t match ours and we can’t enter the US, the US can’t enter our territory,” Ren wrote, according to Reuters.

It won’t be long before an important part of Huawei’s software strategy is revealed. Today, the company uploaded a promotional image on WeChat triggering a big HarmonyOS-related announcement for June 2nd.

The operating system has not yet been released on smartphones, with the initial focus on IoT devices and TVs in its early release.
