In the past, the US president had set out to remove China's Huawei Technologies from Western markets on the pretext of its links to the PRC military and industrial complex. As a result, communications operators in some countries were forced to abandon Chinese equipment when developing 5G networks. But in the case of Asian and Arab countries, these arguments did not work.
The reorientation of Huawei Technologies to South-East Asian markets is illustrated by the fact that the Huawei Connect cycle began this year in Bangkok, Thailand, with the participation of representatives of the authorities of Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines and Bangladesh, and all four countries are building their 5G ecosystem based on Huawei components.
The company will follow up in Dubai and Paris, and the Gulf countries are also willing to use Huawei equipment to build a fifth-generation national communications network, and France has had to recommend to its telecommunications operators that they refrain from purchasing Huawei equipment, but the local authorities have allowed the Chinese company to build a local enterprise.
In parallel, the Chinese giant continues to develop the market for artificial intelligence systems, and this week Huavei introduced technology to develop anti-bacterial drugs using artificial intelligence, which reduces costs by 70%.
The company is also working with governments in Asia and the Pacific to help them develop their own digital transformation strategy, and while Thailand and Malaysia have made further progress on this path, Indonesia, the Philippines and Viet Nam are still at their initial level. By 2024, Huavei will have invested $100 million in training some 10,000 developers and supporting 1,000 young companies in the region.
