TOKYO/GUANGZHOU -- Japanese companies are weighing the risks involved in continuing to work with China's Huawei Technologies, but few have proved willing at this point to shun such a large and growing customer, a Nikkei survey shows.

Of the roughly 50 major Japanese corporations polled, about 80% said they still do business with Huawei despite American restrictions on trade with the company. The actual figure could be higher, as this does not include companies that declined to respond on the status of their ties.
