In conjunction with the launch, Huawei also signed an agreement with 10 local universities that will initiate the setting up of ten Huawei University Training Labs in each of the universities to cultivate the interest of students in the field of ICT technologies, as well as work towards Huawei's goal of training and developing 10,000 Malaysian ICT professionals by 2016.
The Malaysian Government's drive to expand Malaysia's mark in the ICT field can be seen in the formulation of the Digital Transformation Programme and National Key Economic Areas as outlined in the Economic Transformation Programme in 2010. Huawei in support of this agenda in April 2011 signed an agreement with the Government of Malaysia to develop 10,000 ICT professionals over a period of five years.
"We at Huawei have come to be inspired and motivated by the dedication of the Government to head towards a knowledge and innovation driven economy. We are proud to be able to contribute towards this goal by developing local talents and positioning Malaysia as a world-class global ICT training hub, and now with the launch of the MGTC and corporation with the 10 local universities we are set to continue down this road", said Huawei Malaysia managing director Mr Dai Jingyue.
