Huawei Middle East president Charles Yang speaking at the 2019 SAMENA Leaders' Summit.
5G will help immensely in making the world a safer, and better place for more people, says Huawei’s Middle East president – one of many reasons why Huawei sponsored the most recent SAMENA Telecommunications Council’s Leaders’ Summit for the sixth year in a row.
Speaking to a crowd of hundreds of CEOs, government ministers, heads of international organisations, reporters, and more at the Leaders’ Summit on April 18, Huawei Middle East president Charles Yang summed up in his speech the promise of 5G.
“We think 5G will bring a faster, safer and smarter world,” he said.
Yang also highlighted the numerous 5G projects and use cases Huawei has been involved in – particularly in the Middle East and Africa – such as building more base stations. He also said Huawei had the first affordable 5G smartphone to the market, and that 5G was the “most secure” network ever.
As an integral part of the SAMENA Leaders’ Summit, to accelerate the large-scale deployment of 5G, Huawei hosted the “5G is ON” Forum, which served as an occasion for 5G industry partners to discuss how emerging 5G-enabled intelligent services and innovations may help telecommunications operators to identify new business opportunities, thereby enhancing prospects for achieving growth.
This year’s edition of the SAMENA Leaders’ Summit – as with most years – was held at Atlantis, The Palm, at the top of the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. The event brought together CEOs from major Middle East and African operators, as well as suppliers, vendors and more – including top executives from companies across the telecommunications ecosystem from around the world. Also participating were several government ministers, from both the UAE and abroad.
