Hu Houkun, the rotating chairman of Huawei, delivered a keynote speech entitled "Unleashing Digital Productivity" at the 7th Huawei Connect Conference. Hu Houkun said: "The urgent need for digital transformation in various industries and the rapid iteration and innovation of ICT capabilities have driven global digitalization into the fast lane. It is time to unleash digital productivity.

  • He summarizes the common challenges and concerns of digitalization:
  • First, digital infrastructure still needs to be strengthened.
  • Second, advanced technologies (such as AI, big data, etc.) are difficult to implement in industry scenarios.

In this regard, Hu Houkun shared three suggestions: develop infrastructure, firmly embrace the cloud to achieve leapfrog development, and promote the development of the local digital ecosystem.

Finally, it was announced that Huawei will work with countries/enterprises to develop the local digital ecosystem in three aspects.
