At the 17th annual Global Analyst Summit in Shenzhen, Huawei has shared details of its struggles to survive and how the company is striving to move forward.

Guo Ping started by sharing Huawei’s experience and business results of the past year. This summit was attended by over 2,000 analysts, key opinion leaders, and media representatives from a range of industries, including telecoms, the Internet, and finance.
According to Huawei, they have been committed to bringing digital to more people, homes, and organizations, in order to move the world forward. In the past 30-plus years, Huawei has deployed over 1,500 networks in more than 170 countries and regions, serving over 3 billion people worldwide. Huawei provide smart devices to 600 million consumers. US actions against Huawei will not only harm Huawei, but also harm the experiences of customers and consumers that use Huawei’s products and services.
Huawei has been long contributor to the ICT industry. ICT infrastructure is the foundation of the intelligent world. By 2025, the digital economy will represent an industry worth 23 trillion US dollars. The ICT industry still has great potential. Standing at the threshold of the intelligent world, Huawei can see more opportunities than challenges for the ICT industry, adds the statement of Huawei.
Looking ahead, Huawei will continue investing and innovating in three domains: connectivity, computing, and smart devices. Huawei will work with customers, partners, standards organizations, and all other industry players in domains like supply chain, standards, and talent cultivation, to encourage open collaboration, promote inclusive industry development, and explore the future together.
Guo Ping stated, “Today the world is an integrated collaborative system. The trend of globalization shouldn’t and will not likely be reversed. Fragmented standards and supply chains benefit no one, and further fragmentation will have a severe impact on the entire industry. The industry as a whole should work together to strengthen IPR protection, safeguard fair competition, protect unified global standards, and promote a collaborative global supply chain.”
