LONDON (Reuters) - Chinese telecoms giant Huawei [HWT.UL] said on Tuesday it welcomed by a UK government decision to grant it a limited role in building the country’s future 5G networks.

“Huawei is reassured by the UK government’s confirmation that we can continue working with our customers to keep the 5G roll-out on track,” said Huawei Vice President Victor Zhang.

“This evidence-based decision will result in a more advanced, more secure and more cost-effective telecoms infrastructure that is fit for the future. It gives the UK access to world-leading technology and ensures a competitive market.”
