Davenport Quoted in Foreign Policy on Huawei’s Involvement in Africa

On March 19, RWR COO Andrew Davenport was quoted in a Foreign Policy article on Chinese telecommunications company Huawei’s involvement in Africa. Mr. Davenport said that being the only viable provider of internet connectivity can give China significant leverage over African governments. He added, “Beyond just espionage, there’s leverage that comes with being the low-cost solution provider to a country whose political leadership might, in part, derive popular support from being able to offer connectivity to their population.”
