Huawei is the host sponsor for the sixth consecutive year at the region’s most important telecommunications summit.

Huawei will host the ‘5G is ON’ forum as part of the SAMENA Leaders’ Summit, scheduled for Thursday 18th April. Huawei will explore the 5G readiness of the region and engage in discussions exploring the large-scale deployment and commercialization of 5G.

Private and public sector industry leaders will take part in Huawei’s subforum to discuss how emerging 5G-enabled intelligent services and innovations can help operators identify new business opportunities and thereby achieve growth. Huawei will also use the event as a platform to demonstrate how its E2E 5G solutions can help Middle East organizations fully capitalize on the commercialization of 5G.

SAMENA Leaders’ Summit is a platform for private and government sector leaders in the telecommunications sector to discuss opportunities and challenges in the industry. Attracting delegates from across 29 regional countries, this year the summit invites industry partners to discuss how emerging 5G-enabled services and innovations will start to take shape in the region.

Under the summit theme ‘Early Proliferation of 5G Vital to Building the Digital Economy’, Huawei will partake in several key discussions. They include the high-level leaders’ roundtable conversation addressing the impact of 5G, industry 4.0, cross-industry engagement and digital enablement. Huawei will also be a key contributor to the leaders’ panel discussion, addressing the topic of enabling and transitioning to an ‘inclusive 5G’ ecosystem.

In his keynote address presentation, ‘Bring you 5G Safer, Faster, Smarter’, Charles Yang, President of Huawei Middle East, will address the progress that Middle East and North Africa countries have made in the implementation of 5G, while highlighting the groundbreaking achievements made by Huawei in the realization of accessible 5G networks.

Charles Yang, President of Huawei Middle East commented: “This year’s SAMENA Leaders’ Summit is especially meaningful to us, as 2019 marks Huawei’s sixth consecutive year co-hosting the event, and while in the past we have focused on the imminent arrival of 5G, this year we can say with confidence that the time for large scale 5G deployment has finally come. Businesses, standards, products, and terminals are fully ready, and a comprehensive 5G ecosystem is emerging.

The arrival of 5G will accelerate digital transformation and bring about the all-connected, all-intelligent world, playing a pivotal role in helping regional leaders meet their economic growth targets and national agendas. We are excited to meet with our partners and stakeholders in Dubai to discuss how together we can lead this transformative epoch of digital transformation.”

Alongside the various key discussions, Huawei will also present its latest 5G end-to-end solutions within a dedicated exhibition area. This will include leading 5G-ready technologies such as chipsets and consumer devices, network infrastructure, and bespoke solutions for over 280 global industry partners.

The summit will reinforce the beneficial outcomes gained by Huawei and its partners when working together to accelerate the growth of 5G in the region. Its consultation process and expertise in advanced ICT technologies is setting a global 5G standard while creating the optimal opportunity for cities to achieve digital transformation.

Driven by the goal of creating an intelligent 5G ecosystem, Huawei has invested considerable resources into 5G development, deployment, and infrastructure, and is the first choice for global operators to deploy new generation networks. Huawei has successfully signed 30 5G contracts worldwide and shipped over 40,000 base-stations worldwide.
