“American politicians are not trying to correct us, but to kill us.” Ren is speaking like a father forced to sell a child. “We will not drag innocent people into the water because of our own suffering. However, agents and distributors in 170 countries will dry up due to lack of water in the channels, which will cause millions of people to lose their jobs.”
“Embrace globalization unswervingly,” he recommends. “You must carefully decentralize powers in a game of chess around the world. A reasonable elimination mechanism is a supplement to activating the positive motivation of the entire team. It is necessary to respect people, evaluate science, and adhere to the responsibility and result orientation.”
His amazing advice:
“Don’t feel bad about Huawei, think about your future! In the future, we are competitors. …It is not certain who wins or loses? We will not be polite to you. Some of you seek to defeat Huawei in the competition. They are heroes. Don’t reject them.” (Edited Google translation)
I compare that to AT&T’s Randall Stephenson after he fired tens of thousands. On Wall Street, he bragged about how much less he gave the ex-employees than Verizon had.
On November 26th, Huawei’s Voice Community released Ren Zhengfei’s speech at the Honor Farewell.

We will be apart. For the ten years we have been together, we will feel uncomfortable and excited in our hearts. We are in a great era, and we are also in one of the most difficult times. We were originally a small grass. The violent storms of the past two years have not crushed us. The hard work of hard work may turn us into A small iron tree. The iron tree will bloom eventually. You are leaving now, there is nothing for you, except the yellow leaves blown down by the autumn wind.
1. Why should we spin off Honor Huawei
Under the successive waves of severe sanctions in the United States, we finally understand that certain American politicians are not trying to correct us, but to kill us. We have the ability to overcome Huawei’s short-term difficulties. We will not drag innocent people into the water because of our own suffering. However, agents and distributors in 170 countries will dry up due to lack of water in the channels, which will cause millions of people to lose their jobs. Suppliers will also have a backlog of goods and declining sales because of our inability to purchase, which will drag down the stock market. What’s wrong with them, why can’t we bear some sacrifices? You just go to share the joys and sorrows with them, so that the dry channels will be filled with running water when the water source is not cut off. But you are not the savior. You must put a religious and pious attitude toward your customers, faithfully safeguard the interests of customers, and sincerely respect your commitments to suppliers. The spirit of contract is the basis for your invincibility. Glory produces mid- and low-end products. After the divestiture, Glory quickly resumed production under the leadership of Zhixin Company to solve the difficulties of upstream and downstream partners.
We have been together for more than a decade, and we have almost strict management, transforming a group of innocent and romantic young intellectuals into “warriors” who can fight hard. In the past, some of our methods were too cold, sorry. To see you off today is the same reluctance. Just as the autumn wind is blowing , the apricot leaves are yellow, and it may be a colder wind when you go out. We can no longer protect you from the wind and rain. Take good care of you.
2. How to do this well
First of all, restore the supply of channels as soon as possible. If the channels are dry for a long time, the grass withered, it will be difficult to restore life. Water, water, water, why the Dai people shout this slogan, it shows that the water in the channel is life-saving water.
Fully embrace globalized industrial resources and establish relationships with suppliers as soon as possible. Supply is a very complex and multi-faceted issue. It is more difficult for you than any new company. How to overcome difficulties is what lies before you heroes and heroes. Insist on learning from all advanced things, including learning from people you don’t like.
Embrace globalization unswervingly, and strengthen the embrace of companies from Britain, the United States, Europe, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea. The United States is a world technological power and many of its companies are excellent. You must be firm and bold in cooperating with them, and at the same time domestically. Cooperate with partners and grow with them.
You must maintain the fine traditions that have been formed. Cadres and experts must be globalized, professional, and diversified. In addition to the localization of staff, you must carefully decentralize powers, lest you cannot be a game of chess around the world, so that there are many princes, support and self-respect. Row. A reasonable elimination mechanism is a supplement to activating the positive motivation of the entire team. It is necessary to respect people, evaluate science, and adhere to the responsibility and result orientation. After leaving the large team, operating independently, there will be difficulties, being careful and determined, and Can’t accommodate.
Persist in the goal and direction of the struggle, persist in doing something and not doing something, persist in innovation, and never allow the team to increase entropy.
3. Be the strongest competitor of Huawei in the world, surpass Huawei, and even shout down Huawei and become your self-motivation slogan.
Persevere in improving yourself and work hard on the road in the right direction; Persist in making the organization full of vitality, employees have a strong will and desire for victory. Resolutely oppose internal corruption and all corruption and theft. Adhere to the useful habits and systems of the past, manage the team in a scientific and comprehensive manner, and move forward calmly. There will be setbacks, don’t panic. Give full play to the power of collective thinking, make bold decisions, and don’t be arbitrary. Unite and move forward.
Today is our “divorce” ceremony, so I won’t say more. Once “divorced”, we should not be disconnected anymore. We are adults . We should handle them separately, strictly follow compliance management, strictly abide by international rules, and achieve our respective goals. You can’t be like a young man, when marriage and love are hot and cold, lingering and unclear. Don’t feel bad about Huawei, think about your future! In the future, we are competitors. You can hold “foreign guns” and “foreign guns”. We hold the new “made in Hanyang” and the new “big swords and spears”. It is not certain who wins or loses? We will not be polite to you. Some of you are scolding and defeating Huawei in the competition. He is a hero. Don’t embarrass them.
