CAIRO — A batch of 15 Egyptian students have graduated from China's giant corporation Huawei's first Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Academy in Egypt, Huawei manager told Xinhua on Thursday.

Gao Jianbin, Huawei's enterprise business marketing manager for Northern Africa Region, said Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy (HAINA) is a non-profit program that seeks to train ICT talents and promote the development and dissemination of ICT technologies.

The graduation ceremony was held at Badr University in Cairo (BUC) on Wednesday and the 15 Egyptian graduates received their HAINA certificates after successfully finishing the four-week training program.

BUC President Mostafa Kamal welcomed HAINA program and praised the efforts made by Huawei for training ICT talents at the university.

HAINA's target partners are mainly universities, colleges and schools that are interested in providing ICT talents to the Egyptian society and qualifying their graduates to meet the requirements of the ICT industry chain.

"It is just the start of Huawei HAINA plan in Egypt and there will be more and more students to benefit from this program from both the BUC and other universities in Egypt," Gao told Xinhua.

Headquartered in Shenzhen, Huawei is a global ICT solutions provider operating in over 170 countries.

Egypt is one of Huawei's most important markets and Huawei has been engaged in Egypt for over 18 years, Gao Jianbin said, adding that the number of their employees has reached 1,000.

Huawei has already built the Technical Assistance Center, Global Service Resource Center and Customer Solution Innovation & Integration Experience Center in Egypt and will build the Cairo OpenLab this year for the industry solution integration, innovation and partnership.
