The Financial Times leads with yesterday's Huawei story with the headline: "Huawei tees up its own phone software after Google ban".

Jaguar Land Rover's record losses are featured on the front pages of the business sections of the Guardian and Times, while the latter also goes with: "Silicon Valley hit by fears of technology cold war".

Intriguing headline, but what's the story? In short, the value of technology firms is being hit by the US-China trade war. Chipmakers Qualcomm and Broadcom have been hit, along with Apple and Alphabet.

Meanwhile the FT's Companies & Markets section leads with the news that Ford is cutting 7,000 jobs.

Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei has hit back at US efforts to thwart the firm's global ambitions.

Mr Ren's comments to Chinese state media comes days after the Trump administration placed fresh restrictions on Huawei's ability to do business in the US.

"The current practice of US politicians underestimates our strength," Mr Ren said, according to CCTV.

"Huawei's 5G will absolutely not be affected. In terms of 5G technologies, others won't be able to catch up with Huawei in two or three years."
