Huawei opens first Bahrain competence centre
Manama, February 5, 2013
Leading technology solutions provider, Huawei, has opened its first Middle East IT Competence Center in Bahrain to support the advancement of its overall IT and telecom industry while acting as an excellence hub for innovation at the global level.
The multinational company which also locates its Middle East headquarters in Bahrain has established the new center particularly to develop high-level IT competencies of students up to senior-level professionals, a statement from the company said.
Over the coming years, this will include a host of new jobs being created while cooperating with local Bahrain universities and education institutions on global research projects, providing an independent IT training programme to students from across the Middle East, and equipping Huawei’s customers in Bahrain with the latest IT support tools to further advance communication networks in the Kingdom.
“Huawei Global Competence Centers are an innovative component of Huawei's global strategy to provide ICT industry leaders with reliable and consistent service anywhere anytime,” said Shi Yaohong, president of Huawei Middle East.
“Huawei has recently set up similar regional hubs in countries such as US, India and China, and we believe Bahrain is one of the important strategic markets within the Middle East region given its widespread investments in the fields of education and support for cutting-edge communication networks.”
Huawei has been operating in the Middle East for over 10 years and has built several landmark ICT projects within Bahrain including work on the recent IT outsourcing projects for customers across the Kingdom, leveraging the company’s proven global experience and technical expertise.
With Huawei's technological experience in 150 countries worldwide, the company’s latest investment will help create jobs in the IT field while ensuring that local telecom subscribers will have access to some of the most advanced broadband technologies in the world, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
