TAIPEI -- Huawei Technologies will push ahead with developing 6G wireless technology in defiance of a U.S. crackdown on the Chinese tech giant, its founder and CEO has told employees, exhorting them to "break limits in the sky" and set global standards for the emerging industry.

Ren Zhengfei, speaking to a gathering of in-house scientists, researchers and interns early last month, said the company will continue developing its 5G and artificial intelligence businesses while also working to secure its lead in next-generation technology, according to an internal company document seen by Nikkei Asia.
