Egypt's largest information and communications technology (ICT) exhibition, Cairo ICT 2020, is taking place this week. The event provides a major platform for local and international companies to expand businesses in the Middle East. This year's theme is called "The Big Reset" to reflect a new start of the world after the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The exhibition was inaugurated by President Abdel-Fattah El Sisi and kicked off on Sunday with the participation of a large number of firms, including China's ICT giant Huawei.
"This is the 20th year for Huawei in Egypt and we are very proud to join the ICT Cairo events every year," Leo Liu, vice president of Huawei Northern Africa Enterprise Business Group Solution Sales Department, told Xinhua.
He noted that the company's participation in the expo affirms Huawei's policy to back the endurance of developing the information and communications sector in Egypt.
Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Huawei's business is growing in Egypt and globally, Liu noted.
We are more popular now as more customers buy our smartphones and other products ... people choose Huawei because we provide the best technologies
Held in Egypt International Exhibition Center, the four-day event is also joined by Egyptian ministries of communications and information technology, defence, interior and planning, and the Central Bank of Egypt.
