Meng was arrested in Canada on 1 December 2018, while changing planes at Vancouver global airport.
WATCH (March 4, 2019): Does Meng have a strong case against USA extradition?
Meng's defense lawyers seek to discredit the US handover request and argue Canada improperly arrested her.
Huawei has said Skycom was a local business partner in Iran but the USA maintains it was an unofficial subsidiary that the Chinese telecom giant used to continue doing business in Iran despite US export sanctions. The company reiterated that the US -ordered arrest was "an unlawful abuse of process - one guided by political considerations and tactics". Following the Huawei executive's arrest in December, China detained former Canadian diplomat Michael Kovrig and businessman Michael Spavor, in what observers saw as retaliation.
The limited scope of an extradition hearing means the Crown's disclosure obligations are different from domestic prosecutions, so it's up to the defence to prove they're entitled to more, he said.
The next court date in the process, which could last years, was set for 23 September, while the formal extradition hearings are expected to begin in January.
Howes said the allegations against Meng are untrue and said the business activities of Meng were conducted openly and transparently with the full knowledge of banking officials.
Meng, released on C$10 million ($7.4 million) bail in December - has been living with her husband and youngest daughter at one of the family's two luxury homes in Vancouver, speaking regularly by phone to her father.

Seoul's defense ministry said the findings will be shared with France and discussions on returning the remains are being planned. However, the USA said it was still open to talks with Pyongyang following the missile tests.
He called the focus on sanctions a "complete red herring" and said the allegations against Meng centre on an alleged misrepresentation she made to a bank that put that bank's economic interests at risk, adding it's not yet time to make arguments in the case. The arrest was decried by Beijing, which demanded that Canada immediately release the Chinese national.
Meanwhile, Huawei's Meng was back in court in Vancouver on Wednesday, with her lawyers arguing that the USA case was politically motivated.
Meng Wanzhou, 47, was arrested in Canada in December at the request of the US.
John Gibb-Carsley, lawyer for the Attorney General of Canada, asked Justice Heather Holmes to allow the case to proceed as quickly as is fair and possible.
Lawyers for Meng and spokesmen for the US Department of Justice and Huawei all declined to comment ahead of the hearing. -China trade negotiations showed the case against her might be politically motivated.
Huawei and Skycom are also defendants in the US case, accused of bank and wire fraud, as well as violating USA sanctions on Iran.
Why is the United States seeking her extradition?
She arrived at court, wearing an elegant full-length black and gray weave-pattern dress, with the ankle monitor prominently visible.
In addition, the judge changed Meng's bail terms and granted her to move from her 6 million, six-bedroom house to another of her homes which is worth $16 million and has seven bedrooms.
