Huawei calls for all ICT companies to join its global supply chain

Huawei procurement team targets Australian ICT expertise

ICT solutions vendor, Huawei Australia, has put out a call for Australian ICT companies to join its multi-billion dollar supply chain.

The company said, in a statement, that a delegation from Huawei’s global procurement department will visit Australia in early August to provide an opportunity for Australian ICT suppliers to learn about Huawei’s supply chain system and to pitch their products and services.

The workshops will be open to a wide range of industry players, from small network component makers to complex telecom software programmers.

The workshops will be held in Sydney on August 6 and Melbourne on August 7, from 8:30am to 1pm.

The Sydney event will be held in partnership with NSW Trade & Investment, and the Melbourne event in partnership with the Victorian Government Department of State Development, Business and Innovation. Huawei chief technology officer, Peter Rossi, said 70 Australian businesses have already registered for the workshops.

“Huawei wants to open its doors to Australia’s ICT industry and find opportunities for local technology to join Huawei’s global supply chain.

“Today, 70 per cent of Huawei’s components come from suppliers outside of China – 32 per cent from the US, 32 per cent from Taiwan and Europe – and we’re looking for win-win partnerships with Australian ICT companies,” he said.

The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) has also thrown its support behind the events and has invited members to attend.

AIIA CEO, Suzanne Campbell, said the workshops offer a chance for Australian ingenuity to go global.

“These workshops will allow Australian ICT experts to learn how Huawei’s global supply chain operates, as well as giving them the opportunity to pitch their latest innovations to an industry giant working in more than 140 countries,” she said.
