Huawei, Jobs Commission Partner to Foster ICT Growth

Around 4,000 young professionals are set to benefit from a partnership between the Chinese tech giant Huawei and the Jobs Creation Commission. A three-year programme is expected to train 800 individuals at 40 universities during the first year with plans to scale up to 4,000 individuals at 100 universities and TVET in the latter phases. Officials of the Commission signed a Memorandum of Understanding last week with executives of Huawei to train and certify students and professionals involved or interested in the information technology and telecoms sectors. With over 20 years of engagement in Ethiopia, most recently involving Ethio telecom's 4G LTE Network expansion project, Huawei has so far created an estimated 300 jobs.
