Well that's why I said conspire meaning with these countries. If these countries the US offers to subsidized not to buy Huawei, might as well help them get more money out of it. Multiply it by how many countries and that's going to be a lot of money the US will have to fork up.Unlikely to be viable. All bids to national providers, can be subject to freedom of information requests, if they are not published as standard. Even if such information is not normally made public, the US will know if China is trolling them by purposefully making lowball bids to US ally nations that are likely to get the US grants, so can easily get those nations to publically disclose the lowball price China was offering.
It will be hard to charge actual market prices when everyone can point to specific lowball bids you have made, and so it’s quite possible that by trolling in this way, China ends up being the one being forced to make unsustainable subsidies.
