Huawei opens Sydney Training and Innovation Centre

By

NSW Premier Mike Baird has officially opened Huawei’s $30 million National Training and Innovation Centre in the Sydney suburb of Chatswood.

Huawei says the centre is one of the biggest investments it has made in Australia. It will train Huawei customers, partners, students and staff, and “enable local based innovation with partners and customers in the Innovation Lab.”

Huawei global CEO Ken Hu said: “Huawei Australia has trained over 3,000 people in the last five years. The centre will help us continue our effort in talent development and innovation in Australia. With the capacity to train over 2,000 people each year, the new centre is equipped with the latest technology including wireless, fixed technology as well as unified communication solutions.”

Hu said Huawei will also fund the training of at least 100 university and TAFE students as part of its broader commitment to investing in the local community. “Innovation has become part of our DNA.

“That’s why we invest at least 10% of our revenue each year in R&D since its founding in 1987."

NSW Premier Mike Baird met with technologists and students at the opening. “There’s a strong market for new technologies in NSW and I welcome Huawei’s investment and commitment to creating a better ICT sector in this state.

“NSW and China’s Guangdong Province, where Huawei is based, share a sister state relationship that spans 36 years. The company’s decision to establish a training and innovation centre in Sydney is an example of the strength of the relationship.

“I also welcome Huawei’s investment in training local TAFE and university students, which will ensure we have the talent needed to make the most of the ICT innovation and shape our future economy,” Baird said.

Huawei says it has spent over US$6.6 billion on R&D in 2014 and over US$30 billion over the last ten years.
