Qatar: The opening ceremony of Huawei’s new state-of-the-art office at the UDC Tower in Pearl Island was led by HE the Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Mohamed bin Ali bin Mohamed al-Mannai.

The office spans 4,000 square meters and is designed to cater to Huawei’s growing workforce and future needs.

Steven Yi, president of Huawei Middle East and Central Asia, stated: “The move reaffirms Huawei’s long-term commitment to Qatar and is a milestone in the company expansion plan targeted at enhancing its presence, activities, offerings, and contributions to the Qatar market to achieve its mandate to play a key role in achieving the country’s digital transformation goals.”

Moreover, he shared that looked forward to welcoming customers, partners, visitors, and Huawei team members to the new office, expressing confidence that this expansion will drive the recruitment of elite talent aligned with the goals of Qatar National Vision 2030.

Al Mannai also expressed his satisfaction, “Huawei is considered one of our important partners and is among the top leading companies in the field of ICT. I am pleased to welcome Huawei’s new expansion in Qatar. There is no doubt that this will contribute to enhancing digital innovation and creating new digital opportunities in the Qatari market.”

The new office will serve as Huawei’s hub for carrier networks, enterprise, consumer, cloud, digital power, and CSR programs in Qatar.

Huawei’s partnership with UDC, the master developer of Pearl Island and Gewan Island, aims to enhance smart city features through innovative solutions. Last year, UDC extended its collaboration with Huawei to deploy a smart campus system at their new development on Gewan Island.

Huawei actively contributes to Qatar’s ICT ecosystem by fostering local talent through STEM and education initiatives, including the Seeds for the Future program, Huawei ICT Competition, and Huawei ICT Academy, aligning with the country’s focus on innovation.
