The Consumer Prices Index including owner occupiers’ housing costs (CPIH) 12-month inflation rate was 2.0% in December 2018, down from 2.2% in November 2018.

As I noted earlier today, Huawei is regarded as a security risk (because it is Chinese) and as such part of the "Great Game" being played out between the USA and China for global dominance. Hence, there will be Chinese countermeasures for this.
