Fortunately for fans of smartphones Huawei, we are not talking about the mobile division of the company, and telecommunications. As the Financial Times, Huawei has decided to get rid of its stake in the venture, Huawei Marine Systems, the main activity of which was laying fiber optic cables on the seabed.

Huawei Marine Systems, the owner of the controlling stock of which is Huawei, is among those few enterprises which are engaged in construction of fiber optic routes between the continents. Now, however, all share Huawei will go to Hengtong Optic-Electric Co Ltd. The sides signed an agreement on the transfer of a controlling stake, however, the total amount of the transaction were not disclosed. But interesting in this situation is not the money, and the fate of Huawei.

What awaits Huawei
