Shenzhen, July 17th (People’s Daily Online) - On an official visit to China, South African Deputy President Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa today visited Huawei’s headquarter in Shenzhen, China, and met with the company’s executive board director Jason Li. Ramaphosa and Li discussed extensively how both parties can construct ICT infrastructure and develop talent in South Africa. Huawei then announced training of 1000 SA ICT talents.

"Huawei is committed to long-term investment in South Africa's ICT sector, and strives to build a better connected South Africa with its advanced technologies and professional services.” Said Li, “As a leading global ICT solutions provider, Huawei will continue to share its global experience with the South African government, strive to become its advisor on ICT planning and development, and increase investment while developing local talent."

To cultivate local ICT talent, Huawei not only provides operational and technical training for ICT startups, but also establishes LTE labs and R&D funds for colleges in South Africa. Recently, Huawei became the device sponsor for the e-library initiative launched by the South African Department of Basic Education, providing tablets for 61 e-libraries across the country to help develop local literacy.
