AT&T Deal Collapse Forces Huawei to Rethink Global Plans

The abrupt demise of Huawei’s deal with AT&T is setting off a chain reaction within the Chinese tech giant as it realizes that this may mark the end of its American dream.

The company will likely redirect more of its resources into Europe and other major overseas markets, a senior Huawei executive said.

“We have no other options,” said the executive.
