Huawei Connect 2022, Huawei’s 7th annual flagship event for the global ICT industry has begun in Bangkok, Thailand. The event with the theme Unleash Digital is drawing over 10 thousand ICT industry leaders, experts, and partners globally. Together, they will explore how they can effectively unleash more digital productivity, promote digital economy, and build a stronger digital ecosystem.
At the inaugural event, Huawei shared the steps it is taking to enhance digital development on a range of industries. It also released over 15 innovative cloud services for the global market.
Kickstarting the event, Ken Hu, Huawei’s Rotating Chairman delivered a keynote wherein he outlined three ways ICT ecosystem can help break through common hurdles in the digital transformation.
Huawei says that the GDP growth has remained unstable in the past two years. However, the digital economy has remained steady and consistent globally – more than 15% in 2021. It argues that the growing practice has compelled many companies to shirt their operations with next-generation digital technology.
“Going digital is clearly the right choice,” said Hu. “The demand is there, and so are the technologies. The world is unleashing digital productivity, and it’s happening right now.”
At the event, Zhang Ping’an, the CEO of Huawei Cloud, announced the launch of new Huawei Cloud Regions in Indonesia and Ireland. By the end of 2022, Huawei Cloud will be operating in 75 availability zones in 29 regions around the world. This will boost services for over 170 countries and regions.
Huawei Cloud and its partners also used the opportunity to launch the “Go Cloud, Go Global” ecosystem plan. The plan is to accelerate the development of global digital industry on global scale for joint innovation and shared success with Everything as a Service mantra.
With this, Huawei Cloud is dedicated to building the industry-leading platform for innovations for cloud services. Jacqueline Shi, President of Huawei Cloud’s Global Marketing and Sales Service, announced the global launch of 15+ new advanced services. This includes Huawei Cloud CCE Turbo, Ubiquitous Cloud Native Service (UCS), Pangu wave model, DataArts LakeFormation, Virtual Live, CodeCheck and CloudTest, KooMessage, KooSearch, and KooGallery.
Similarly, Huawei also extended its commitment to start collaboration for shared success. It called for governments and enterprises to work more closely together to cultivate local digital ecosystems that build innovation partners, strengthen the talent pool, and support startups.
Simon Lin, the President of Huawei Asia-Pacific Region, also delivered his keynote. In it, he released the Digital First Economy whitepaper that concerns the targeted policy suggestions for digital infrastructure construction and digital economy development in the Asia-Pacific region.
“The Asia-Pacific region is standing at the forefront of the global digital landscape,” said Lin. “Huawei is committed to becoming a key contributor to the digital economy in the region. We will keep supporting its digitalization and sustainable development efforts, and building out the industry ecosystem.”
At the same event, a distinguished group of government representatives from the APAC region also took the opportunity to share the progress they have made with advancing digital economy development in their respective countries. These include H.E. Supattanapong Punmeechaow, Thailand’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Energy; H.E. Chaiwut Thanakamanusorn, Minister of Digital Economy and Society of the Kingdom of Thailand; H.E. Airlangga Hartarto, Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia; H.E.
