[Beijing, September 2, 2015] Huawei Senior Vice President Qu Wenchu met with Serbian President Tomislav Nikolić on August 31 at Huawei's Beijing Research Center. President Nikolić visited the center's exhibition hall where he experienced Huawei's latest business developments, R&D and innovation efforts, and leading technologies, especially those in the areas of 5G and the Internet of Things. Qu and President Nikolić discussed how Huawei can get involved in Serbia's national ICT planning to improve mutual cooperation in the ICT field.
President Nikolić described Huawei as a role model in the area of corporate social responsibility (CSR). He stated that, "Over the past few years, Huawei employees and the Huawei brand have attended all major social and charity activities in Serbia. We are very grateful for their involvement. By offering young people ICT training opportunities through the Seeds for the Future program, Huawei is committed to transferring ICT knowledge and actively fulfills its CSR to incubate valuable seeds for the future."
Qu said, "We provide advanced ICT technologies and solutions and train ICT talent locally to help build a better connected Serbia. As a leading global ICT solutions provider, Huawei will continue to share its global ICT experience with Serbian people and aim to become an advisor to the Serbian government on ICT planning and development. Meanwhile, we will continue to increase our investment and talent cultivation efforts in Serbia."
Since it entered the Serbian market ten years ago, Huawei has offered Serbian people advanced and easily accessible communication technologies and services. Serving over 80% of the nation's telecom users, Huawei has become a strategic partner of local tier-1 telecom operators. Currently, Huawei regards Serbia as a regional resource and competence center with the capacity to cover its entire Southeast Europe market, including Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia, and Albania.
