"HUAWEI CONNECT is similar to the Roman Square where inspirations were gained through the exchange of ideas, and will connect the most active ideas worldwide. During the event, participants will share assumptions, explore directions, and create theories to drive the development of future smart society. In addition, the event will serve as an ecosystem platform where Huawei seeks to openly collaborate with its partners to achieve shared success and build an information society and a smart society. HUAWEI CONNECT is also a big event for connectivity and cloud technologies," said William Xu, Executive Director of the Board and Chief Strategy Marketing Officer of Huawei. "Huawei will continue to focus on ICT infrastructure, build a sustainable cloud ecosystem, enable customer and partner innovation, and strive to become a preferred partner for customers during their execution of cloud strategies."
