Egypt's Minister, Global Huawei Review Boosting ICT Investment
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 25 - 05 - 2014

The Minister of Communications and Information Technology Atef Helmy received today in his office at Smart Village the Vice President of Huawei Technologies Ding Shaohua, in the presence of the Chief Executive Officer of the Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) Hussein El-Gueretly and Huawei - Egypt Country Manger Yang Tao.
During the meeting, the company's investments in Egypt, real opportunities raised by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) and Huawei's plan to expand its investments in the Egyptian market during the coming period were discussed.
Helmy praised the positive position of Huawei expanding in the Egyptian market during the past period, its contribution at providing job opportunities for youth and expansion in specialized training, thus improving the efficiency of the Egyptian youth through specialized ICT training centers, therefore, raising competitiveness locally and internationally.
He also welcomed the future plans of the company to raise investments in Egypt relying on the Egyptian high-qualified youth.
Helmy called on Huawei to participate in implementing the broadband strategy and multiplying the number of youth trainees as well as participating in ICT projects implementation in Suez Canal Axis.
He also called on the company's training centers to penetrate innovation fields and support concepts of entrepreneurship, in cooperation with the Nile University and the Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center (TIEC) affiliated to the Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA).
He underlined the fact that Egypt has thousands of young talents with distinguished ideas and solutions for society challenges.
For his part, Ding said that Huawei stood side by side with Egypt pointing out to the national ICT strategy 2013- 2017 through which the Minister moved with persistence out of a deep belief in pushing the industry in Egypt.
He added that the transitional phase that Egypt had been going through was marked by challenges, but Huawei always believed that challenges come with opportunities.
He explained that the company was committed to investment in Egypt and incessantly contributing to the Egyptian society in ICT, and supporting the development of the industry under an optimistic vision of Egypt's future in this field; and that Huawei was ready to participate in supporting the new strategy.
Global Huawei considers Egypt a regional center for their customers, where the main headquarters in North Africa was established in Egypt serving 22 countries side by side with the regional Network Operation Center (NOC) in order to support the stability and security of customers networks and commercial activities.
This is in addition to establishing the regional Technical Assistance Center( TAC) to answer the needs of its customers, as well as the Global Resource Service Center (GSRC) to support main projects in the region. Huawei has been in Egypt for 15 years during which it has provided distinguished training to around 5000 specialized trainees through its Regional Training Center (RTC).
Moreover, Huawei plans to provide more training opportunities to students and fresh graduates, customers and partners in the coming five years. This is in addition to presenting consulting services in telecommunications. Huawei Authorized Network Academy (HANA) was inaugurated in the National Telecommunication Institute (NTI) in Smart Village last year.
The company also launched, in the beginning of 2014, Huawei Authorized Learning Partners (HALP) for training on latest technologies in communications in cooperation with NTI in Nasr City.
