Huawei pleads not guilty to stealing U.S. trade secrets

The Chinese tech giant Huawei pleaded not guilty to U.S. trade-theft charges in a case that has heightened a trade dispute between the world's two largest economies. Huawei used that information to improve its own robot.

The U.S. has been urging allies to ban Huawei as charges of espionage activities, trade secret theft and other allegations surface. Huawei could face fines of more than $5 million Dollars (roughly $6.5 million CAD).

Reuters reported on February 28th that the companies were "arraigned" and that a trial has been set for March 2nd, 2020.

The US has accused China of using predatory tactics to turn Chinese companies into leaders in tech fields such as robotics and electric vehicles.

Huawei, the No 2 smartphone maker and an essential player in global communications networks, has also been charged in NY with lying to banks about deals that violated economic sanctions against Iran.
