The global economy is now faced with a new norm. The finance sector is seeing new changes. How do we accelerate the application of new technologies and innovatively improve productivity? As Jason Cao, CEO of Huawei Global Digital Finance, said, "You will understand if you study the trend, be wise if you follow the trend, and be a winner if you adapt to the trend." Huawei strives to accelerate technology application in six fields, including shifting from transaction to digital engagement, developing cloud-native applications and data, evolving infrastructure to MEGA (multi-domain collaborative, efficient, green, and autonomous), industrializing data and AI application, enhancing real-time data analysis, and moving towards a cutting-edge AI brain. In this way, Huawei helps financial customers accelerate changes, innovatively improve productivity, make productivity visible, and speed up evolution towards the future.

"In this way, Huawei will facilitate financial digitalization and innovatively improve productivity in Africa. Revolving around stability, agility, and intelligence, Huawei aims to build 'non-stop' financial services, and achieve 'non-stop' development alongside 'non-stop' innovation," he added.
