Philippe Wang, executive vice president of the North Africa region of Huawei, affirmed, before a Moroccan delegation coming to visit the Huawei service center, the company’s desire to work with Moroccan partners to launch 5G in the country.
For the Moroccan delegation, it was a question of learning about the latest technologies developed by Huawei, in particular, those inherent in the use of the 5G network in the fields of media, broadcasting, smart cities, transport, health, or industry.
According to the Chinese technology group, this collaboration in 5G should bring the country closer to its ambition of digital transformation and be a technological center in Africa.
“Morocco has multiple assets capable of establishing itself as a hub in the digital domain in Africa,” said the regional head of Huawei, recalling that the group has signed agreements with 8 Moroccan universities for the training of 12,000 students in three years as well as the launch of the “Seeds for the Future” program. The latter allows each year to 10 Moroccan students, the most deserving in the field of ICT, to benefit from a month-long stay in Chinese universities and Huawei Technologies laboratories in Shenzhen (China).
“We are a major partner in digital transformation with all partners in Morocco,” said Philippe Wang. Indeed, Huawei, which entered the Moroccan market in 1999, sealed partnerships with the three telecom operators present namely Maroc Telecom, Orange Maroc and INWI and cooperated with several other partners, including the National Office Railways (ONCF), to which the Chinese company already provides the technologies necessary for the communication services of the High-Speed Line (LGV), via the GSM-R network.
