  • The Huawei Innovation Forum, a real opportunity to share the unique vision shared by Huawei and brilliant minds through debates on innovation-related topics

“This platform and these activities demonstrate the importance Huawei places on creativity and innovation,” said Harvin Appadoo, Regional Strategic Director of Huawei.

Participants will be able to submit their mobile application idea by registering via email with Huawei’s PR agency: The entry must be written in English and the project description must not exceed 200 words.

As a reminder, the Huawei Creativity & Innovation Week is an initiative that will bring together Mauritian entrepreneurs and innovators to share their experiences and beliefs around innovation and creativity. To achieve technological and economic growth, each country must accelerate their digitization process through open collaboration with stakeholders in the ICT ecosystem.

“We want to celebrate innovation. It’s all about an innovative idea, and from there, the possibilities are almost endless,” adds Harvin Appadoo.

Huawei has already emphasized the need for countries around the world to measure and monitor their digitalization development, in order to steer ICT development towards a more innovative future. As a result, with the company’s experience working with government and businesses around the world to create smarter cities and industries, Huawei continues to push the boundaries to develop solutions that enable digital transformation.
