The MoU was signed during the official opening of the 2016 ICT summit in Windhoek between information minister Tjekero Tweya and Huawei Southern Africa vice president Li Jian.
Li said Huawei will share its vast knowledge pool in four key components, namely, capacity building, infrastructure, policy framework, and especially the Seeds for Future training program.
“Through this program, we commit to provide ICT training to 10 Namibia students in Huawei headquarter in China in the following year,” he said.
He said that Huawei, with its advanced technology and dedicated service, aims to help Namibia achieve its Harambee Prosperity Plan goals advocated by President Hage Geingob to alleviate poverty by 2020.
According to Li, they will also work with the information ministry to achieve 100 percent broadband connections and usage to all public sector agencies to allow for e-governance as well as 100 percent coverage by digital TV and radio broadcast to all households.
Huawei entered Namibia in 2005. Enditem
