Huawei ICT Certification program cultivates talent ecosystem in Asia Pacific

Huawei Technologies hosted its Huawei Asia Pacific ICT Talent Forum 2020 to explore ICT talent trends and talent development strategies in the Asia Pacific region. At the online event, joined by over 2,000 participants, the company announced a new certification program to develop a comprehensive ICT talent ecosystem to pave the way to sustainable Digital Transformation.

Under the theme ‘Connection, Glory, Future,’ the forum gathered industry experts and IT professors. The Huawei Asia Pacific ICT Certification Program was announced at the event.

Michael Macdonald, Chief Digital Officer and Executive Consultant of Huawei Asia Pacific, said: “The foundation of the new ICT industry now consists of Cloud Computing, Big Data, the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence.

 “As enterprises redefine their job requirements, this new ICT landscape will leave us with an estimated shortage of about five million professionals. We aim to globally develop two million ICT professionals over the next five years to match high demand for skilled workers. In 2020, we are going to build more than 200 Huawei ICT Academy and train 10,000 ICT certification in Asia Pacific region. ICT talent ecosystem is Huawei’s long-term strategy and we will work with universities and local HALP partners to help students and ICT practitioners become more competitive in their careers.”
