Malaysia’s communications minister Mr Gobind Singh Deo told Reuters that Malaysia will choose partners for its rollout of 5G based on the country’s own standards and not US recommendations as Washington advises allies around to world to be wary of working with the Chinese firm Huawei. He told “My position is very clear, we have our own safety standards, we have own safety requirements. So whoever deals with us, whoever comes up with proposals, we have to be certain and we have to be sure they meet the security standards that we have.”

Mr Singh Deo told Reuters that Malaysia is aware of the concerns that have been expressed around the world about Huawei, but said Malaysia will use guidance from its own security standards in choosing partners for its 5G rollout plan this year. He said “When you talk about security, be it Huawei or anyone else, you want to be assured that whatever system they propose ... is suitable for you. We do not say we will not deal with one particular company because generally there are security concerns.”

Mr Singh Deo said consumer access to 5G will likely come online by the end of the year or early 2021.
