"Estamos na China há 120 anos e não pretendo desistir facilmente", disse o presidente-executivo Borje Ekholm em entrevista à Reuters. "Vamos mostrar que podemos agregar valor à China." A Ericsson fez lobby junto ao governo sueco a favor da Huawei, alertando sobre uma possível retaliação por parte da China, mas a proibição foi aprovada e mantida na justiça.

STOCKHOLM, Sept 3 (Reuters) - Ericsson's (ERICb.ST) top executive vowed to double down on efforts to regain market share lost in China after Sweden blocked Chinese suppliers from its 5G roll-out, a move that antagonised Beijing and has hit the equipment maker's business.

China accounted for about 10% of Ericsson's revenue last year, but that fell sharply after the company's home country of Sweden banned Huawei (HWT.UL) from its 5G networks, citing security risks - a charge that Huawei has strongly denied.

Ericsson was awarded about 2% of China Mobile's 5G contract, down from 11% last year, and got a 3% share in a joint 5G radio contract from China Telecom and China Unicom.

"We have been in China for 120 years and I don't intend to give up easily," Chief Executive Borje Ekholm said in an interview with Reuters. "We are going to show that we can add value to China."
