Huawei trains Latin American students

 A total of 30 university students from Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica were in China on Monday for a training programme offered by tech giant Huawei.

According to the company, the programme, tagged “the Future’’ was aimed at spreading knowledge, increasing awareness of an interest in information and communication technology, and encouraging broad participation in digital communities.

The students had visited the company’s office in Beijing and its Headquarters in Shenzhen during the two-week programme, which would end on September 20.

The Mexican ambassador to China, José Luis-Bernal, said the programme would offer Latin American students a great opportunity to experience technological advances that China had made.

Jordan Madden, a Jamaican student at the University of the West Indies, said he was excited about the opportunity.

“Since arriving in Beijing, I’ve been able to see so many technologies, which have given me a lot of ideas that I hope I can bring to Jamaica,’’ he said.

The Vice President of Huawei’s Latin American operations, Zhang Ruijun, said there were endless possibilities for future seeds and hoped everyone could learn from the programme and contribute to the development of information technology in their countries.

“By the end of 2018, more than 30,000 students from over 400 universities around the world have benefited from the programme, including some 4,700 students invited to China for training,’’ Ruijun said. (NAN)
