Huawei pledges to deepen investment in Nigeria


Huawei, a global provider of Information and Communications Technology infrastructure, has pledged to increase its investment in the country and enable the digital transformation of all industries.

The company pledged to drive the energy, financial and agricultural industries with advanced technology in order to develop the digital economy.

The Chief Executive Officer, Huawei Enterprise Nigeria, Tank Li, expressed his delight at the growth of ICT in Nigeria and unfolded Huawei’s plans to deepen its investment in the country while speaking at the Huawei Nigeria Eco-Connect 2019 held in Lagos.

Li said, “Our partners are the most important platform. Huawei is willing and ready to share the profit with its local partners for a sustainable ecosystem, where all partners can grow together.”

“Today, I feel really amazed. Three years ago, we only had 20 or a maximum of 25 channel partners in this kind of event, but today, we have more than 500 channels registered. This shows the great confidence that we put in this country, Nigeria. It is still the biggest economic entity on the African continent.”

According to Tank Li, Huawei plans to enhance its relationship with its partners to further develop the Nigerian market by creating an ecosystem around the partners.

“In our enterprise business, our core value is really to build an ecosystem with our partners together. In 2019, we will raise our connection with the partners’ ecosystem and we will call it ‘Huawei Insight’, that means we will enlarge our collaboration with all the partners,” he stressed.

The Vice President, Huawei Cloud Business Unit, Mr Edward Deng, who was represented by Mr Olusoji Adeyemo, stated that the company was ready to assist the Nigerian government to transform the energy, finance and agricultural sectors, among others.

He said “Africa is one of the most diverse and promising emerging markets globally with tremendous potential and cloud services are expected to unleash the latent capacity and drive the growth in the country.

“We are looking forward to Huawei Cloud’s innovative technologies and services, such as cloud computing and artificial intelligence assisting African and by extension the  Nigerian government, carriers, and enterprises in a variety of industries such as finance, energy, agriculture, to leapfrog to a fully-connected, intelligent era.”
