BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 28 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese technology firm Huawei has issued an "An open letter to the U.S. media", inviting members of the U.S. media to visit Huawei's campuses and meet its employees.
"The U.S. is a shining example of how to inspire passion for technological innovation and development. We too have been inspired by your history of creativity and hard work," said the letter, bearing the name Catherine Chen, a Director of the Board at Huawei, who is in charge of public and government affairs.
"I am writing to you in the hopes that we can come to understand each other better. In recent years, the U.S. government has developed some misunderstandings about us. We would like to draw your attention to the facts," the letter said.
"We work with many leading U.S. companies on technology development, business consulting, and procurement. In addition, we support university research programs in the U.S., helping them make significant progress in communications technologies, which we believe will benefit the whole world," the letter said.
"On behalf of Huawei, I would like to invite members of the U.S. media to visit our campuses and meet our employees. I hope that you can take what you see and hear back to your readers, viewers, and listeners, and share this message with them, to let them know that our doors are always open."
"We would like the U.S. public to get to know us better, as we will you," the letter said, ending with a Huawei email address as a means of contact.
