“To the layperson, Huawei is best known as one of the world’s top three smartphone makers. But Huawei is firstly a world leader in telecommunications – its industry-leading equipment, connecting developed and developing countries, is present in 170 countries. The company’s origins, however, are far humbler,” reads the intro on the BBC’s website.
Huawei has been making strides in the Middle East, and today the region remains a strong market for Huawei globally as both the public and private sectors are making critical investments in ICT infrastructure. Earlier this year, Zhengfei recognized the Middle East’s bold digital transformation efforts and the Arab world’s long and profound history in mathematics and engineering.
