Jay Chen, vice president of Huawei Asia Pacific, while announceing Huawei’s programme, said, “In the digital economy, digital talent is playing an increasingly important role in driving digital transformation and economic growth. The access to education is vital for creating opportunities that support sustainable and fair development.”

The Seeds for the Future programme, initiated in Bangladesh in 2014, has so far seen participation from around 6,000 students.
In the country, Huawei partnering with local online learning platform Bijoy Digital provided distance learning solutions to the T-and-T High school and its branches across Bangladesh during the pandemic.
Huawei ASEAN Academy has been launched in Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia since 2019 and has cultivated more than 100,000 talents for preparing for the digital future. Huawei has built collaborations with around 200 universities in countries across the Asia Pacific, the release said.
