Launched in 2008, the King Khalid Responsible Competitiveness Award is the first and only award focused on responsible competitiveness and corporate responsibility in the Kingdom, and Huawei is the first ICT company to win first place in the award’s history.

In this context, the King Khalid Responsible Competitiveness Award recognized Huawei for its transformative impact in driving forward the Kingdom’s ICT sector as a whole in line with the government’s digitization goals, National Transformation Program and Vision 2030. In particular, Huawei was celebrated for deploying their most advanced technologies, high quality product and secured networks in the Kingdom, empowering local partners, taking the ICT talent pool to the next stage of creativity and innovation, and building the ICT ecosystem to achieve the digital kingdom economy targets.

Accepting the award, Charles Yang, President of Huawei Middle East, stated: “We are deeply humbled to receive such recognition from Saudi Arabia’s leadership. In the Kingdom, Huawei is determined to bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world. The improvement is endless on the road to providing customers with high quality products and services. Today's award is a milestone for us to continue to surpass ourselves. We will continue to play an active role in driving Saudi Arabia’s ICT sector development and grow together with our local partners, openly collaborating to build an ever deeper pool of ICT talent empowered to enable the industry digital transformation.”

Huawei established its subsidiary in the Kingdom in 2002. In the past 17 years, under the core values of customer-centricity, Huawei has maintained the quality goal of 'becoming a high-quality synonym for ICT industry' and continues to bring innovative information and communication technology (ICT) solutions and products to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, actively promote the development of the Saudi ICT industry and the national digital transformation, develop Saudi ICT talents, and support the goals  of Saudi National Transformation Plan 2020 and 2030 vision.
