Huawei has revealed in a press release that Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen met with the Chinese equipment vendor’s acting CEO Ken Hu during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders’ Meeting in Beijing to discuss further cooperation for wireless communications networks and ICT development in Cambodia. ‘We feel it is a great honour to be selected as a business partner of the Cambodian government,’ commented Ken Hu, adding: ‘We support their approach to ICT development. They have selected the most advanced wireless communications technology – [Huawei solution] eLTE (4G) – to build their next-generation communications networks. Using this as a starting point, Huawei will strive to become a knowledge partner for the Cambodian government and help them identify and train local ICT professionals.’ Huawei says it has developed extensive partnerships with local telecom carriers and the government over the past 15 years, and the firm now directly employs nearly 200 local staff. As part of the government’s plans to develop ICT within the country, Huawei has also provided a cloud desktop system that can be used by over 500 people when working remotely.
