This year has been extra ordinary as we have witnessed an exponential growth in Digital Transformation across all industries. There are three trends worth paying attention to. Firstly, digitalization is accelerating and moving towards traditional industries. Secondly, the main transformation scenario is extending from office to production spaces, entering a new stage of intelligent upgrades. Finally, adoption of technologies like AI, 5G and Cloud have taken quantum leaps, and are finding greater traction than ever before.

Today as we put the spotlight on digital economy and Smart Cities, our focus will pivot accordingly and we will explore how to create new value for industries and society across various technology domains. Huawei will keep innovating in two areas — technology and scenario-based solutions — to help our customers in all industries go digital.

Keeping this in view, we have designed the ‘Huawei MENA Industrial Digital Transformation Summit 2021’, which will be held from 8:30–13:30 (GMT+4) on Tuesday, October 19. During the summit, we will discuss how ICT technologies can help governments and enterprises accelerate digital transformation and better adapt to changes in the external business environment. Best practices and insights will be shared on how organizations can make better use of digital technology solutions.

I look forward to you seeing you at the summit as we continue to strive to create more value for customers, partners, and eco-system.
