Huawei Plans to Develop 50000 ICT talents in South Asia

Three Keys to Huawei Operations
Yuying shared, ‘Three things have been very important to Huawei. Supporting the industry with cutting-edge technology and infrastructure, sustainable development, and cultivating ICT talents. Huawei is one of the leading companies that invested significantly in research and development. That helps us to provide the best technology to the ecosystem partners so that we can grow together. Besides, countries that have adopted digital strategy recently will largely depend on skilled youth. Huawei, as a responsible partner of ICT development, has a fixed solid plan for talent development.”
“By the end of 2022, we established Huawei ICT Academies with more than 2,200 universities across the globe. Through this program, we train an average of more than 200,000 students each year,’ he added.
