The GSMA presented Huawei Technologies with the 2018 Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Mobile Industry. The award was presented at a special ceremony held last evening, where Huawei was recognized for decades of advocating new technology standards, driving digital transformation, and building out the digital ecosystem.
At the ceremony, Ken Hu, Rotating and Acting CEO at Huawei, accepted the award on behalf of the company.
“Over the years, we have worked with many of you to advance 3G, 4G – and now 5G and other ICT technologies – so that more people can get connected and enjoy better services,” he said.
“In this time, Huawei has connected over one-third of the world’s population,” Hu continued. “I’m proud of what we’ve achieved, but the mobile industry is evolving. It will soon become the cornerstone of a fully connected, intelligent world, and we still have a lot of work to do.”
