Huawei's 5G Network Technology in Austria: Systemic Rival at the Gate to Europe

While all eyes in Europe are focused on the Russia-Ukraine side conflict, the true war is raging elsewhere, namely in network technology between China and the West. This technology war is about nothing less than the global security-technological leadership role of the next decades, and thus about the decisive question of whether the Western democratic world order can assert itself or whether the Chinese authoritarian system with totalitarian surveillance will prevail. Due to its relative weakness, Austria plays an important and central key role in this process. While most Western countries are increasingly and decidedly resisting the deployment of the 5G network infrastructure largely supplied by Huawei and ZTE - which are intricately owned and substantially controlled by the Chinese Communist Party - there are quite a few telecom providers in Austria who are using and even expanding this technology, primarily because their economic survival is already dependent on this technology, and secondly because the Austrian state is largely toothless and ignorant in the face of the push by the Chinese equipment suppliers and their lobbyists.

Corporate Bond Market Comment by Raiffeisen Research: OMV, Kapsch TrafficCom, Telekom Austria

"The slight correction on credit markets that lasted until the middle of last week was calmed by speculations of a possible extension of the US Fed’s expansive monetary policy stance, as well as thus far also unconfirmed reports that the ECB might expand its bond purchases to the corporate bond sector. This slight relaxation was also observable in the stock market volatility, measured by the VDAX. This indicator rose to 23.57% p.a. last week and by yesterday had fallen to 17.75% p.a." Raiffeisen Research is seeing similar market developments in their Austrian Corporate Index.
