"The United States will not cede leadership in global innovation".

The Department of Commerce declined to comment, while Huawei did not respond to an immediate request for comment.

"The Department is committed to protecting USA national security and foreign policy interests by encouraging US industry to fully engage and advocate for USA technologies to become worldwide standards", he added.

The Huawei ban amendment announced on Monday is aimed at addressing that disadvantages. Nevertheless, the USA has gone ahead to ban Huawei, a decision that is hurting the company in some regards.

In the telecommunications industry, 5G, or fifth-generation wireless networks are expected to power everything from high-speed video transmissions to self-driving cars. While the USA claims that the ban is all about national security, there are many who thinks that this ban is because of Huawei's advancement in 5G technology and nothing more.

More recently, the USA said it intends to change export regulations to cut off Huawei's access to semiconductors manufactured by overseas companies with USA equipment or software.

Standards groups allow companies to develop specifications that allow equipment manufactured by different companies to work together.

The rule is still awaiting publication in the Federal Register, but Reuters reports that it will be official as soon as this Tuesday.

The original rule bans U.S. firms from providing technologies to Huawei, making it hard for them to take part in worldwide discussions on setting 5G global standards.

"As we approach the year mark, it is very much past time that this [should be] addressed and clarified", said Naomi Wilson, senior director of policy for Asia at the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), which represents companies including Amazon.co Inc, Qualcomm Inc and Intel Corp.

Wilson added that the move is a much-needed clarification which would allow United States companies to once again compete and lead in these foundational activities. "We look forward to reviewing the rule once posted and working with the administration on implementation", she said.
