The face of pressure from the West, Huawei expects to work on the ICT talent development of 50,000 young people in South Asia over the next five years. Huawei highlighted this plan in an event titled ‘Building a Smart Talent Ecosystem, in South Asia for South Asia’ at Huawei’s South Asia headquarters in Gulshan, Dhaka on Monday.
Huawei’s South Asia Public Relations Department Bangladesh Country Director Ewing Karl presented this plan in the press release.
Ewing said, “Three things are very important to Huawei – providing cutting-edge technology and infrastructure, ensuring sustainable development, and supporting ICT talent development. As a leading company, Huawei invests significantly in research and development. This investment helps our ecosystem partners provide cutting-edge technology and achieve growth together. In addition, countries that have recently adopted digital transformation policies will largely rely on a skilled youth population. As a responsible partner in the development of the ICT sector, Huawei has strong plans to develop young talent.”
He added, “By the end of 2022, we have established Huawei ICT Academy in partnership with more than 2,200 universities around the world. Through this programme, we impart training to over two lakh students every year on an average.”
According to the press release, the invited journalists from South Asian countries and Huawei officials were present at that time
