On November 26, Huawei released the speech delivered by Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei at the honorable farewell party on November 25. Regarding the sale of Honor, Ren Zhengfei said that after the “divorce” between Honor and Huawei, they should not be disconnected, and the new Honor should regard Huawei as an opponent. Ren Zhengfei also suggested that New Glory embrace companies from the United Kingdom, the United States, Europe, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea, and cooperate boldly and firmly with outstanding American technology companies.
Attached is the full text of Ren Zhengfei’s speech:
We will be parting, we have been together for more than ten years, and there is reluctance and excitement in our hearts. We are in a great era, but also in the most difficult time. We were originally a little grass. The storms in the past two years did not break us down. The hardships and hardships may make us become A small iron tree. The iron tree will bloom eventually. You are leaving, and there is nothing for you, except the yellow leaves that fall from the autumn wind and the cold.
1. Why strip away the glory
Huawei has been under the severe sanctions of the United States one after another, so that we finally understand that some American politicians are not trying to correct us, but to kill us. We have the ability to overcome Huawei’s short-term difficulties. We do not drag innocent people into the water because of our own suffering. However, the agents and distributors in 170 countries will dry up due to the lack of water in the channels, which will cause millions of people to lose their jobs. The suppliers also have a backlog of goods and decline in sales because we cannot purchase goods, dragging down the stock market. What’s wrong with them, why can’t we undertake some sacrifices, you are going to share weal and woe with them, so that the dry channels can be filled with water when the water supply is not cut off. But you are not the savior of the world. You must correct your religious devotion to customers, faithfully safeguard the interests of customers, and sincerely respect your commitments to suppliers. The spirit of contract is the foundation of your invincibility. Glory produces mid- and low-end products. After the spin-off, 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 ten years, and our almost strict management has transformed your group of innocent and romantic young intellectuals into “warriors” who can work hard. In the past, some of our methods were too cold, I’m sorry. Today I want to say goodbye to you, and it is the same reluctance to part. Just when the autumn wind starts, the apricot leaves are yellow, and it may be colder when you go out. We can no longer shelter you from the wind and rain. Go all the way and take care.
Second, how to do this
First of all, restore the supply of the channel as soon as possible. After the channel has been dry for a long time and the grass withered, it will be difficult to restore life. Water, water, water, why did the Dai people shout this slogan, indicating that the water in the channel is the life-saving water.
Fully embrace global industrial resources and establish relationships with suppliers as soon as possible. Supply is a very complex and complicated problem. You are more difficult than any new company. How to overcome difficulties is what is before you heroes.
Insist on learning from everything advanced, including learning from people you don’t like. Unswervingly embrace globalization, and strengthen the embrace of companies from the United Kingdom, the United States, Europe, Japan, and South Korea; the United States is a world powerhouse in science and technology, and many of its companies are excellent. You must be firm and bold to cooperate with them; at the same time, you must also cooperate with domestic partners Collaborate and grow with them.
You must maintain the fine traditions that have been formed, and cadres and experts must be globalized, specialized, and diversified; in addition to the localization of staff, you must carefully decentralize power, lest you be unable to play a game of chess around the world, and make the lords stand in great numbers, support your troops, and make them unable to Row. A reasonable elimination mechanism is a supplement to activating the positive incentives of the entire team. It is necessary to respect people, evaluate science, and adhere to the responsibility and result orientation. After leaving the big team, it will be difficult to operate independently. Be cautious and firm, and cannot be accommodated.
Adhere to the goal and direction of struggle, insist on doing something and not doing something, insist on innovation and unswerving, and never allow the entropy of the team to increase.
3. Be Huawei’s strongest competitor in the world, surpass Huawei, and even shout to overthrow Huawei, becoming a slogan for your self-motivation.
Persist in improving yourself, and work hard on the road in the right direction; persist in making the organization full of vitality, and employees have a strong will and desire for victory. Resolutely oppose internal corruption and oppose all acts of embezzlement and theft.
Adhere to the useful habits and systems in the past, manage the team scientifically and comprehensively, and move forward calmly. There will be setbacks, don’t panic. Give full play to the power of collective thinking, make bold decisions, and do not act arbitrarily. Moving forward in unity.
Today is our “divorce” ceremony, so I won’t say much more. Once “divorced”, don’t be disconnected anymore. We are adults, we should deal with separation rationally, strictly follow compliance management, strictly abide by international rules, and each achieve our own goals. You can’t be like a young man, marriage and love, sometimes hot and sometimes cold, lingering, can’t draw the line. Don’t feel bad for Huawei, think about your future! In the future, we will be competitors. You can hold “foreign guns” and “foreign cannons”. We hold new “made in Hanyang” and new “big knives and spears”. Who will win and who will lose? We will not be polite to you. Some of you are scolding Huawei in the competition. He is a hero. Don’t embarrass them.
It’s hard to get along and it’s hard to say goodbye. The autumn wind sends cold apricot leaves and yellow, you go well.
