“I want to thank Huawei again for this strong partnership with our government, ministries, and the strong commitment to future partnership. I believe that together we will be able to transform Rwanda’s economy and the lives of its citizens,” She added.

Speaking at the ceremony Mr. Jianxin, the Chinese Commercial counselor emphasized the importance of ICT and its capability to provide employment and transform the economy.

“ICT has created enormous platforms even in China where our citizens spend billions online in just a few days just like Ali Baba.  This is just one example of how ICT is transforming the lives of everyday citizens, and driving the economy. ICT has truly transformed our economy, creating jobs for people even in remote places. But this technological trend would never be possible if we did not skill students, professionals and entrepreneurs as a nation. That is why efforts such as the Seeds for the Future and the Huawei ICT competition are so important,” He says
