Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s chief financial officer (CFO), went back to work at the company headquartered in the city yesterday. A video clip taken by a Huawei employee showed that Meng, in a black suit, waved to a crowd of fellow workers amid bursts of cheers, DT News reported.
According to Huawei staffers, the place shown in the video is at the company’s B1 District in Bantian Industrial Park in Bantian Subdistrict, Longgang District.
On the evening of Sept. 25, Meng arrived at Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport on a chartered flight organized by the Chinese Government. She had followed the quarantine requirements and went back to the office after finishing the mandatory 21-day quarantine.
“It’s so familiar, so kind and so natural to come back to the company, be around you, see your smiling faces and listen to your laughter,” Meng told the audience. “Over the past three years, our team has not yielded to challenges and difficulties but grown stronger and stronger,” she said.
The video circulated online yesterday, which was also the 77th birthday of Meng’s father, Ren Zhengfei, founder of Huawei. The firm was founded in 1987 and Meng joined Huawei in 1993.
Meng was arbitrarily detained by Canada on a U.S. extradition request Dec. 1, 2018 at Vancouver International Airport.
Thanks to the Chinese Government’s unremitting efforts and the Chinese public’s support, Meng was freed from Canada on Sept. 24, local time.
