A well-known tourist site in China’s central Henan province has promised Huawei smartphone users free entry into the scenic park, showing support for the country’s 5G pioneer amid trouble abroad.

Shennong Sightseeing Park, located in the city of Jiaozuo and famed for its mountain views, will waive a RMB 80 (around $12) entry fee if visitors show their Huawei or Huawei Honor smartphones and subscribe to the tourist site’s official WeChat account when they arrive.

The support for Huawei comes after the arrest of the company’s CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada. Meng faces extradition to the US and has been accused of alleged fraud charges related to violating sanctions on Iran. She has since been released on bail.
