Abdulfatah Abdullahi, Ethiopian Minister of Labor and Social Affairs, made the remarks Thursday at a welcoming ceremony in Addis Ababa University for 12 Ethiopian students who had been to China on a two-week training under Huawei’s “Seeds for the Future” program.
As part of Huawei’s corporate responsibility, the program is designed to develop the students’ capacity in ICT through experience sharing and knowledge transfer.
While hailing Huawei for job creation in Ethiopia, Abdullahi said the program would enable Ethiopians to contribute to the ICT industry development in the country.
Huawei has been implementing the program for three consecutive years for Ethiopians, whereby a total of 42 participants have been benefited from the initiative.
Speaking at the ceremony, John Xu, CEO of Huawei Ethiopia, noted that his company would continue to provide similar opportunities for Ethiopians in the future.
“Huawei Ethiopia remains committed to its social corporate responsibilities by building capacity and positively engaging the youth within their communities and beyond,” Xu said.
Worldwide, Huawei has been implementing the “Seeds for the Future” program in more than 60 countries. Enditem
