According to publicly reported statistics, since the establishment of Huawei in 1987, in the 31 years before 2019, Ren Zhengfei has received no more than 10 media interviews. However, during the three days from January 15 to 17 of 2019, he changed his normal form and met with dozens of media reporters at home and abroad. On the afternoon of the 17th, Ren Zhengfei accepted CCTV's "face-to-face" column reporter Dong Qian. Interview. This is his first interview with domestic TV media.
Being "forced&" interviewed, Huawei is not that difficult
Regarding why the media is facing, Ren Zhengfei said: "The public relations department is "forced".
Ren Zhengfei: They said that they are now in a crisis transition stage. I must let our customers understand us and let 180,000 employees understand us and work together to survive this difficult time. They said that if you still have authority in your speech, then I will speak.
Some people say that Huawei may be the hardest and most dangerous time since the company was founded. Ren Zhengfei said that this is not the case. Huawei's (turnover) growth rate is at least 20% this year, and every department is eager to try.
The most important thing for children is that their wings are hard to fly.
Regarding the incident of Meng Xiazhou, Ren Zhengfei said that he first thanked the party and the state for protecting the rights of a Chinese citizen. I believe this matter will be resolved through law. He didn't have any special concerns, and he often talked and laughed on the phone with Meng Zhouzhou.
Ren Zhengfei revealed that he and Meng Zhouzhou had planned to go to Argentina for the same meeting because Meng Xiazhou was the main moderator of the meeting. She traveled two days earlier than Ren Zhengfei. I never thought that on December 1, 2018, when Meng Zhouzhou was transferred to Canada, he was detained by the local police. On December 11, 2018, the Canadian court ruled that the application for bail of Meng Zhouzhou was approved>>>.
That night, Meng Xia’s friend circle who walked out of the court said: I am proud of Huawei, I am proud of my motherland! The picture is a Huawei advertising picture of "Ballet Feet", which reads: The great behind is suffering.
For this advertising map, Ren Zhengfei said in a speech at the Davos Forum:
In addition to drinking less coffee than others, we do more work, no better than others. It is because we started too late, the growth period is too short, and there are too few accumulated things. We have to eat more than others. So we have a foot that is just wearing ballet shoes, and one is a bad foot. I think this is Huawei's person, hurt and happy. Huawei is such a bad foot, it explains how we go to the world.
reporter:Because of work, it is normal to see the face for a long time, but because of this accident, will you especially miss her and miss her?
Ren Zhengfei:No, no. I think the most important thing for children is that their wings are hard and they are free to fly. This is the expectation of parents. We still have to solve this problem through the law. We are confident that we can solve it.
Some things we have, European and American countries can’t buy it.
Currently, from Asia to Europe, from South America to North America, Huawei operates in 170 countries around the world, has signed 30 5G commercial contracts, and shipped more than 25,000 5G base stations worldwide. Although Huawei has not had a major security incident so far. However, there are still some countries that use the “network security” as an excuse to boycott Huawei's entry.

Ren Zhengfei:You are doing well, no one will buy it, don't worry. Huawei is the best in the world to make 5G the best. Huawei is the best in the world to make microwaves the best. If you don't buy them, they are stupid. If they don't buy them, they will lose. The competition is peaceful competition. The technical competition is peaceful competition. In addition to buying (they), there is still a way.
reporter:European and American countries account for 60% of investment in telecommunications. If important European and American countries do not allow you to participate in competition, is there any way?
Ren Zhengfei:No, we have a lot of things, and European and American countries can't buy them. I will sell them to them. We don't account for the fact that they have refused us. We are a market economy, customer-centric, and I will sell them when they want to buy.
45% of Huawei's 180,000 employees
According to reports, Huawei accounts for 45% of the 180,000 employees worldwide, and R&D spending accounts for about 15% of sales each year. In 2018, Huawei invested more than US$15 billion in research and development and exceeded US$100 billion in the next five years.

Ren Zhengfei:In the past, the pattern of division of production, education and research was not suitable for modern society. We could not wait for scientists to finish the procedure, so we cultivate a large number of scientists. Our company should have at least 700 mathematicians, more than 800 physicists, more than 120 chemists, more than 6,000 experts specializing in basic research, and more than 60,000 engineers. Building such a research and development system allows us to quickly catch up with the progress of the times and seize more important commanding heights.
reporter:If the money for basic research is invested a lot, but what if I don’t see the results?
Ren Zhengfei:The unsuccessful scientific research has also cultivated talents. One of our young men went to Sweden for two years and led a group of scientists to break through in semiconductors. This is a major breakthrough in human society.
Huawei’s biggest problem now is that the organization’s bloated people are overstaffed.
In 1987, at the age of 44, Ren Zhengfei founded Huawei and chose the high-tech “Telecom”. Today, Huawei is the world's leading provider of information and communication infrastructure and smart terminals, and is committed to bringing the digital world to everyone, every family, every organization, and building a smart world of Internet of Everything. However, in the interview, Ren Zhengfei did not evade problems within Huawei. He admits that Huawei's biggest problem now is not from the outside, but the internal organs are bloated and people are overstaffed.

reporter:In your mind, is Huawei's development to today an ideal state?
Ren Zhengfei:What is going wrong with Huawei is that the organization is bloated, people are overstaffed, and there are too many management levels. We are reforming. If we can succeed in organizing reforms around five years ago, we still have combat effectiveness.
reporter:What should Huawei be like in the future?
Ren Zhengfei:It should be relatively lean, not as bloated as it is now, so complicated at the management level, so many PPTs, so many meetings, so much invalid work.
I want to concentrate on doing a good job in Huawei. I can only sit still when I work.
In 2018, China’s reform and opening up 40 years, 100 “reform pioneers” received the commendation of the Party Central Committee and the State Council. Many people expected that Ren Zhengfei, who has been upholding the spirit of hard work and creating a miracle of Huawei’s development, did not enter. A list of recognized personnel.

reporter:Are you actively applying to the Shenzhen Municipal Party Committee and Municipal Government (list) and adding yourself?
Ren Zhengfei:it is true. I want to concentrate on doing Huawei. I feel that my energy needs to be put into my internal aspects. If I participate in social activities, I will consume energy. Call me a meeting, sit on the bench, sit for two hours, I can't sit still, I slip, and (again) not glamorous.
reporter:What can you do to sit still?
Ren Zhengfei:I can sit still when I work as a company.
Doing education well, the country has a future
In the reception hall of Huawei headquarters, a promotional film was repeatedly broadcast on the big screen. Its core content is that basic education and basic scientific research are the fundamental driving force for the birth and revitalization of the industry.

Ren Zhengfei:In the next two or three decades, society will undergo earth-shaking changes, and the greatest progress will come from the advancement of education and science. A country must first attach importance to education and attach importance to basic education, especially basic education in rural areas. Some people in foreign countries have said that the prosperity of a country is completed on the podium of the elementary school classroom. At the same time, education is the cheapest defense, and defense is not necessarily the most powerful weapon.
In Ren Zhengfei's view, if the education is done well, the country will have a future. Therefore, to improve the treatment of teachers, poor teachers can not be poor, so that excellent talents are willing to be teachers, so that excellent children are willing to learn teachers, so that you can achieve the best people to train better people. ”.
