BANGKOK, September 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — HUAWEI CONNECT 2022, Huawei’s annual flagship event for the global ICT industry, kicked off today in Bangkok. The theme of this year’s event is Unleash Digital, bringing together more than 10,000 ICT industry leaders, experts and partners from around the world to explore how to more effectively unleash digital productivity, advance the digital economy and build stronger digital ecosystems.
At the event, Huawei shared the steps it is taking to promote digital development in a wide range of industries and launched more than 15 innovative cloud services for the global market.
Three initiatives to help all industries go digital
To start an event, Ken Huchairman of the board of Huawei, gave a keynote speech in which he outlined three ways the ICT ecosystem can help overcome common barriers to digital transformation:
- Develop digital infrastructure, including more reliable connectivity and more powerful and diverse computing resources.
- Help organizations move beyond simple cloud adoption and truly get the most out of the cloud by focusing on advanced technology services that drive rapid growth.
- Build local digital ecosystems, including developing partners, strengthening the digital talent pool and providing greater support to SMEs.
GDP growth has been volatile for the past two years. However, the digital economy has recorded steady growth on a global scale of more than 15% in 2021. This has prompted many organizations to transform their operations and service offerings with next-generation digital technologies.
