SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Huawei Technologies saw slight revenue and profit growth in 2020, in line with its expectations, its rotating chairman said on Tuesday, even as Washington toughened up sanctions against the Chinese telecom equipment maker.

The company was put on an export blacklist by former U.S. President Donald Trump in 2019 and barred from accessing critical technology of U.S. origin, affecting its ability to design its own chips and source components from outside vendors.

Huawei has repeatedly denied it poses a security risk.

"Huawei was confronted with some extraordinary difficulties last year," rotating Chairman Ken Hu said at industry event Mobile World Congress Shanghai.

"Operations were relatively stable and in line with our guidance, registering slight growth in revenue and profit."

Earlier this month, the company's founder and Chief Executive Ren Zhengfei said he hoped the Biden administration would "harbour an open policy" towards U.S. firms doing business with Huawei in his first comments to the media in about a year.

China has so far spent more than 260 billion yuan ($40.27 billion) in building its 5G network, an official with the Ministry of Information and Information Technology said on Tuesday.

Huawei on Monday unveiled its new 5G Mate X2 foldable phone, which will use the company's proprietary Kirin processor.

Though with the cheapest model starting at 17,999 yuan ($2,788), the phone is not positioned to challenge the mainstream phone market.

Huawei set up 50,000 5G base stations in Indonesia, Hu said, adding that it plans to build 2,000 base stations in remote regions of Ghana.

The company is expected to post its full-year results in March, a spokesman said.

It's near impossible to conduct business with a country where the supreme leaders can simply take from you what you invest.  These countries don't understand that the strength of capitalism in democratic countries come from it's courts and legal structure.  When everyone can feel safe China's courts can overrule their supreme leaders and they don't place the participants in labor camps it will be safe to invest.

China has rules and laws, they are not run by special interests and billionaires.... that is why they have a great capitalist systems... if not, why would their economy be number one in a few more years? And why can they got rid of their poverty, and we here have homelessness everywhere in the big cities? Why we have the 1% owning 90% of the wealth? Explained to us?...
