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.
