BANGALORE - Huawei Technologies is taking measures to convince the
Indian government that there are no security issues arising from Indian
telecommunications operators buying its equipment, it said Wednesday.

The company plans to manufacture its equipment in India, and to set up
an advisory council to help the company's management in India, a
spokesman for the company said on Wednesday.

The council, consisting of top Indian experts on telecommunications,
will advise the management on regulatory issues, and on working with the
Indian government and customers, he added.

The company also plans to increase the number of local staff employed at
its Indian sales and development operation, including in senior
management, the spokesman said. About 85 percent of the staff are now
Indian, with the balance from China, he said.

Orders for Huawei equipment from some mobile service operators have been
disallowed by the Indian government since February, the spokesman said.
