Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, has become one of the first technology firms to register with one hundred percent ownership in Qatar.
Huawei’s position as one of the first fully-owned technology companies operating in Qatar follows a May 2018 announcement that the country would open to one hundred percent foreign ownership.
In order to support its increased activities in the country, the company has also opened a new office in West Bay, Doha.
Huawei’s new office will expand and enhance the company’s activities in sectors with a key role to play in achieving the country’s developments goals. The opening of this third office will help Huawei better serve Qatar’s national ICT and telecommunication needs and reinforces the company’s long-term commitment to the country.
Frank Fan, CEO of Huawei Qatar, said: “Huawei is proud to open a new office in Doha and to become one of the the first fully-owned technology companies in Qatar. This marks an exciting new period of growth for us in the country, and we are looking forward to expanding our activities and collaborating with our local partners and customers to further innovate and drive forward the local ICT industry. We thank the government of Qatar for their continued support and hope to work together for many years to come.”
