Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO) has welcomed Huawei, the leading global information and communications technology solution provider, as the organisation's ICT Sector Member.

This is membership category of the CTO that is open to the private sector.

“It gives me great pleasure to welcome Huawei Technologies as one of our members. Members of the CTO greatly benefit from knowledge and experience sharing. Huawei’s membership will help strengthen our organisation and its contribution to the use of ICTs for development across the Commonwealth,” said Shola Taylor, the CTO’s secretary-general.

The global network equipment and solution provider also contributes to global policy efforts in areas such as universal access, infrastructure and cybersecurity – issues that the CTO regularly addresses through forums and consultations on these important policy issues.

Like the CTO, Huawei has a long-standing commitment to international capacity development. The Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy (HAINA) is a not-for-profit partnership programme that authorises universities and colleges to deliver Huawei certification courses to students.

“Huawei is very pleased to become an ICT Private Sector Member of the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation. The CTO is a highly respected international body and it provides a strong platform for both the public and private sectors to exchange best practices related to the promotion and use of ICT innovation in the world today. Huawei is committed to driving the innovation of ICT industry and contributing to CTO’s agenda by sharing its global vision and practice,” said Victor Zhang, president of Global Government Affairs at Huawei.   

Huawei is a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider and aims to enrich life and improve efficiency through a better connected world, acting as a responsible corporate citizen, innovative enabler for the information society, and collaborative contributor to the industry.

Driven by customer-centric innovation and open partnerships, Huawei has established an end-to-end ICT solutions portfolio that gives customers competitive advantages in telecom and enterprise networks, devices and cloud computing.

The Chinese company's 170,000 employees worldwide are committed to creating maximum value for telecom operators, enterprises and consumers.

Huawei's innovative ICT solutions, products and services are used in more than 170 countries and regions, serving over one-third of the world’s population.

The Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO), on the other hand, is the oldest and largest Commonwealth intergovernmental organisation in the field of information and communication technologies.

With a diverse membership spanning developed and least developed countries, small island developing states, and more recently also the private sector and civil society, the CTO aims to become a trusted partner for sustainable development for all through ICTs.
