Huawei Technologies Cooperatief/Jordan on Wednesday inaugurated its new headquarters in Amman and launched the Huawei Academy Jordan.
The academy was launched to support Jordan as a regional platform for the development of human resources in the ICT sector, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by Minister of Labour Samir Murad, Minister of Industry, Trade and Supply Tareq Hammouri, Minister of ICT Muthana Gharaibeh and Chinese Ambassador to Jordan Pan Weifang, as well as Huawei officials and senior executives.
The Huawei Academy in Jordan is expected to offer over 3,000 students advanced ICT training over the next three years, in cooperation with several Jordanian universities and institutions.
The academy will deliver training on state-of-the-art ICT technologies, encourage students to receive Huawei certification and help trainees develop practical skills in the ICT industry.
In 2016, His Majesty King Abdullah discussed the vital role of the ICT sector in Jordan with Huawei’s deputy chairman and rotating CEO, Guo Ping.
The ICT sector in Jordan offers investment incentives and capable human resources, which has made Jordan a regional hub in the field, King Abdullah said at the time.
His Majesty commended the China-based multinational telecom company’s role in developing the ICT sector in the Kingdom by establishing centres for training and planning, in addition to developing networks for the empowerment of entrepreneurs at the time.
Ping commended the “Reach 2025” initiative which aims to help Jordan become similar to advanced countries in the field of ICT, which he said is also important for the national economy and society.
During the meeting, he said that Huawei would provide support to enable the sector to keep up with developments and contribute to building smart cities.
Huawei is a leading global provider of ICT infrastructure and smart devices. It launched its first office in Jordan in 2005 and provides telecom operators in the Kingdom with the latest requirements for the sector.
