Huawei held its 17th annual Global Analyst Summit in Shenzhen, China, both onsite and online.
Huawei was joined by over 2,000 analysts, key opinion leaders, and media representatives from a range of industries, including telecoms, the Internet, and finance, said a press release.
The participants discussed how the industry can work together to weather the difficult times, achieve win-win outcomes, and accelerate the arrival of the intelligent world.
At the opening of the event, Huawei’s rotating chairman Guo Ping delivered a keynote speech titled “Huawei: A Year and Beyond”. Guo Ping started by sharing Huawei’s experience and business results of the past year.
He said, “Over the past year, many technologies became unavailable to us. Despite this, Huawei struggled to survive and is striving to move forward.”
Huawei has long been an active contributor to the ICT industry. In the past 30-plus years, Huawei has deployed over 1,500 networks in more than 170 countries and regions, serving over 3 billion people worldwide.
“We also provide smart devices to 600 million consumers. US actions against Huawei will not only harm Huawei but also harm the experiences of customers and consumers that use Huawei’s products and services,” Guo Ping said.
ICT infrastructure is the foundation of the intelligent world. By 2025, the digital economy will represent an industry worth 23 trillion US dollars.
The ICT industry still has great potential. Standing at the threshold of the intelligent world, we can see more opportunities than challenges for the ICT industry.
Guo Ping stated, “Today the world is an integrated collaborative system. The trend of globalization shouldn’t and will not likely be reversed. Fragmented standards and supply chains benefit no one, and further fragmentation will have a severe impact on the entire industry.”
The first Huawei Global Analyst Summit took place in 2004 and has been held annually ever since. This year’s summit will be held until 20 May.
