Huawei is working in Bangladesh through continuous contribution and participation in the process of realizing Digital Bangladesh. They are working in close collaboration with the government of Bangladesh for two decades since 1998.
This friendship has helped Bangladesh move faster towards the Vision 2021 project, which is bringing new opportunities for the youth talents. I hope the “Seeds for the Future” 2019 program will get bigger momentum in future by involving more Bangladeshi students. The most praiseworthy thing about Huawei is that, even being a tech-giant, Huawei never boasts of their achievement. Instead, they keep on investing more and more in research and development to create a better connected world together. Within a very short time, this company has come this far by their relentless innovation and quality services.”

Huawei wants to push these young talents forward so that they become valuable industry forerunners. Innovation is at the heart of Huawei, which is making the company clearly ahead of the curve. Advanced technology, richest R&D facility and superior services are the blueprints of Huawei’s success model.
I hope this program will help students improve their technical expertise and skill for work. For last 20 years, Huawei is cooperating with Bangladesh closely and Seeds for the Future is greatly helping the youth to be well trained to create a better connected, intelligent Bangladesh. In future, we will continue our contribution to the digitalization process."
