Huawei, a global leader in information and communication technology (ICT) solutions, organized the closing ceremony of the ‘Seeds for the Future’ talent development program on 11th June 2015 at the Eden Ballroom, Amari Dhaka Hotel in Gulshan. Zunaid Ahmed Palak, Honorable State Minister for ICT division, Ministry of Posts, Telecommunications and Information Technology, was the chief guest at the event.

‘Seeds for the Future’ is Huawei’s global talent development program. Huawei has been organizing this event globally since 2008 and this is the first time Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) organized the event in the country.  The main purpose of the competition is to encourage young students to come up with new ideas and ICT solutions on the theme of enriching people’s life through ‘E-Service,’ said Zhangmingwen, Chief Operating Officer of Huawei Technologies Bangladesh. Huawei has selected 10 top winners among 500 Plus students’ presentations from five universities through the judges panel comprising of faculty members and experts from Huawei, he said. The final 10 winners of the competition will have the opportunity to visit Huawei Headquarter in China to participate in various knowledge sharing and learning sessions in mid August.

Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Ltd has created almost 800 jobs directly and over 10,000 jobs indirectly in the country, of which 90% of the employees are local people

Mr. Zhao Haofu, CEO of Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Ltd, said, “I just came to Bangladesh last week and have already started to learn everything about the country especially the ICT industry. One thing that really surprised me about Bangladesh is that the country has such a clear and sustained ICT development policy and its vision which is known as ‘Digital Bangladesh.’ I can tell you that I have hardly seen such initiative in other developing countries. It will not be wrong to say that even compared with developed countries, such kind of policy and vision are yet to be in place the way the Bangladesh Government has done it.”

Zhao Haofu further added, “Thanks to the Honorable Minister again for leading this MACROPOLICY which gives all of us a good environment to contribute to this country and its society.  For this good policy- with a strong leadership hand from you honorable Minister, along with high quality of Engineering education from different universities in country, Huawei is confident to contribute more to the ICT Development of the country.”

The ICT and telecommunication sector is a vibrant sector in Bangladesh and this sector is playing a significant role in economic development and job creation in the country. Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Ltd has created almost 800 jobs directly and over 10,000 jobs indirectly in the country, of which 90% of the employees are local people. Huawei also sees an immense growth of ICT industry in Bangladesh in the near future as the country has more than 160 million people and most of them comprise of the young generation and are very tech-savvy.
