At the just ended special edition of the TVA Dialogue, the Enterprise Director for Huawei, Ghana, Mr. Geoffrey Li, expressed how awe-struck he was with the performance of Ghanaian ICT students and their keen interest shown in exploring the ICT industry during the Huawei Seeds for the Future Program held in China.
Mr. Geoffrey Li mentioned that over the years, Ghanaian students taken to China for training have shown seriousness in learning as well as in exploring the possible avenues and opportunities in the ICT space.
Speaking at the dialogue, he indicated that the students’ ability to win at the Global finals depicts how they have been adequately prepared for the job market and in respect to that, Huawei will continue to collaborate with government and policy makers to sow more seeds for the future.
Mr. Li mentioned that Huawei promised to give free training to 1,000 students in the tech industry which it has successfully accomplished, however with the impact made, the leading ICT Company intends to extend the number to 5,000 to give back to society and promote knowledge transfer.
“ICT talents are key to the development of the tech industry that is why Huawei hopes to contribute its quota for socio-economic development by investing in talents who can help drive Ghana and Africa as a whole to the preferred level.”
“If Ghana as a country grows faster, Huawei will also grow along, as such industry development is key,” he added.
Mr. David Appiah Amoako, the Public Relations Manager for Huawei Ghana also mentioned that the Seeds for the Future Program has been phenomenal with great experiences and training from great engineers to enable the seeds sown bear good fruits.
He encouraged aspiring beneficiaries to study, explore and develop more as complacency is not an option at Huawei.
He added that Huawei is ready to build a fully connected Ghana and as a result, policy direction should be favorable to the industry with government placing more focus on tech and innovation.
“Huawei is here to help us drive the full benefit of the industrial revolution,” he said.
