Huawei has announced the opening of its first Middle East IT Competence Center located in Bahrain. The company said that it established the new center particularly to develop high level IT competencies of students up to senior level professionals.
Over the coming years, this will include a host of new jobs being created while cooperating with local Bahrain universities and education institutions on global research projects, providing an independent IT training program to students from across the Middle East, and equipping Huawei's customers in Bahrain with the latest IT support tools to advance communication networks in the Kingdom.
"Huawei Global Competence Centers are an innovative component of Huawei's global strategy to provide ICT industry leaders with reliable and consistent service anywhere anytime," notes Mr. Shi Yaohong, President of Huawei Middle East.
"Huawei has recently set up similar regional hubs in countries such as USA, India and China, and we believe Bahrain is one of the important strategic markets within the Middle East region given its widespread investments in the fields of education and support for cutting-edge communication networks."
Huawei has been operating in the Middle East for over 10 years.
