“I am happy that Huawei has these opportunities where students all over the world can show case their talents in ICT,” Ambassador Judyth said during her remarks at the Awards ceremony. “And even prouder of the youngsters who toiled so arduously to reach this international platform. I’m really pleased to see female students competing in such international ICT competitions. Globally, women and girls have less access to ICT than males do. Uganda continues to set the global standard for advancing women in all fields. Thank you to the students from the three universities and the four teams. They will guide our nation into the digital era.” Ambassador Judyth Nsababera is the general consul of Uganda in Guangzhou, China.

Many Huawei representatives who attended the closing ceremony, including Xiao Haijun, President of Global Partner Development and Sales Dept, Huawei Enterprise Business Group, emphasized the significance of digital talents and skills as the cornerstone of the digital economy.

He said, “Digital talent and digital skills will form the cornerstone of the growth of the digital economy. In the future, Huawei will expand the number of schools it serves with ICT educational tools. By 2026, it is anticipated that we will have built 7000 Huawei ICT Academies, trained more than 1 million students annually, and significantly improved students’ digital literacy and skills for a more vibrant and inclusive digital world.”

A crucial component of the ICT Academy Campaign is the yearly Huawei ICT Competition. It aims to improve communication between universities, businesses, and governments while constructing a strong talent ecosystem, and it targets university and college students around the world. Huawei hopes that through testing the students’ ICT knowledge as well as their practical and application skills through this competition, the “connection, glory, future” theme would ultimately encourage creativity.

The Huawei ICT Competition, a major undertaking of Huawei’s Seeds for the Future 2.0 initiative, aims to give college students around the world a forum for ICT competition and communication. By the end of 2022, Huawei had built Huawei ICT Academies in partnership with 2200 universities, assisting in the yearly training of more than 200,000 students. More than 580,000 kids from 85 different nations and regions have taken part in the competition since it first began in 2015.
