On the sidelines of the SAMENA Leaders’ Summit, Huawei Middle East President, Charles Yang, has provided an update on the company’s business globally and across local markets, with his comments following Huawei’s release of its annual earnings results for 2020.
Yang emphasised the strategic importance of the region to the company internationally, noting Huawei’s commitment to the region and said that there are significant opportunities to enable more aggressive Digital Transformation in support of national development visions and targets.
“Digitisation in the Middle East has accelerated remarkably over the last year, with global network traffic having increased by around 50% during the pandemic,” noted Yang. “The ICT industry thus has an important responsibility to create new social and business value for governments, organisations, and individuals. We are fully committed to this value creation. We already bring the power of technologies like 5G to key events such as the annual Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, support mega-events like Expo 2020 in the UAE and the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. We will keep innovating to create value for our customers and to support economic recovery and social progress.”
To that end, Huawei has said it used 2020 to further enhance its operations despite a challenging global environment.Click below to share this article
