HANOI – Huawei Technologies today, September 14, appointed Wei Zhenhua as its new CEO for Vietnam.
With more than 20 years of experience in the information and communications technology (ICT) industry and over three years holding a managerial position in Vietnam, Zhenhua will be responsible for the company’s business operations, ensuring the implementation of Huawei’s commitment to promoting the transformation of the energy system and zero-carbon industries, creating a new driving force for economic growth.
Zhenhua began working at Huawei in 2001 as an executive in charge of the business in China. Before being picked as the new CEO of Huawei Vietnam, he worked as the deputy CEO of Huawei Vietnam.
Zhenhua said, “A global green industrial revolution with the goal of achieving carbon neutrality is a top priority. The Vietnamese Government has also set out long-term goals in comprehensively responding to climate change. Huawei annually invests over 10% of its revenue in R&D to bring about value for the industry and the society through innovation. Thanks to that, Huawei […] is willing to coordinate with Vietnamese partners to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from ICT facilities.”
Zhenhua added that Vietnam remains an important and strategic market for the company, which has been here for 23 years. In the Asia-Pacific region, Huawei pledged to invest US$100 million in the startup ecosystem in the next three years and will focus on developing four startup centers, including one in Vietnam.
