Czech President welcomes Huawei's 5G participation

Czech President Miloš Zeman met with Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei in Beijing on April 27. President Zeman voiced his support for Huawei, saying he believes current cyber security allegations against Huawei are groundless. The president also said he hopes Huawei will play a bigger role in the Czech Republic's economic digitisation and 5G deployment.

"Huawei is a leader in the digital sector, especially in the 5G and smartphone industries. The current allegations against Huawei are groundless, and I hope to see Huawei's continued development in the Czech Republic," he said.

Since establishing its Czech Rep office in 2003, Huawei has become a strategic partner for the top three carriers in the country. Over the years, Huawei has consistently provided secure, stable and high-speed networks to the Czech people and worked closely with local partners to deploy safe cities, smart grids and other projects.

Huawei also been active in fulfilling its corporate social responsibilities in the Czech Republic, with 28 Czech students participating in its ICT talent training programme, Seeds for the Future, which includes a two-week study trip to Huawei facilities in China.
