“In 2022, a challenging external environment and non-market factors continued to take a toll on Huawei’s operations”, said Eric Xu, Huawei’s Rotating Chairman, at the company’s annual report press conference. “In the midst of this storm, we kept racing ahead, doing everything in our power to maintain business continuity and serve our customers. We also went to great lengths to grow the harvest – generating a steady stream of revenue to sustain our survival and lay the groundwork for future development.”

Growing together with ecosystem partners
Huawei is a strong supporter of growing together with its ecosystem partners. It believes that openness and collaboration lead to shared success. Similarly, the company has continued to open up its platform capabilities across its HarmonyOS, Kunpeng, Ascend, and cloud portfolio. The company believes it leads to improving developer experience as well as enabling and supporting its ecosystem partners on all fronts. Huawei works with more than nine million developers and over 40,000 ecosystem partners to spurn its ecosystem-based innovation and create greater value for its customers.
“2023 will be crucial to Huawei’s sustainable survival and development,” Xu noted. “Plum blossoms tend to grow sweeter from a harsh winter’s freeze. Today, Huawei is like a plum blossom. While it’s true that we have considerable pressure ahead of us, we have what it takes to come out the other end – with opportunities to grow, a resilient business portfolio, a unique competitive edge, the enduring trust of our customers and partners, and the courage to invest heavily in R&D. We are confident in our ability to rise above any challenge that comes our way, laying a solid foundation for sustainable survival and development.”
