Huawei Achieves Highest Award from Institut Teknologi Bandung in Recognition of Commitment towards ICT Ecosystem Development

Leading global information and communication technology (ICT) solutions provider Huawei received the Ganesa Widya Jasa Adiutama award from the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB). This award is the highest form of acknowledgment from ITB to parties who are considered to have a real and sustainable role in developing the local ICT ecosystem, including organizations and individuals.

Prof. Reini Wirahadikusumah, PhD, ITB rector, handed the award to Yenty Joman, Director of Government Affairs, Huawei Indonesia.

Representing the ITB academic community, Prof. Reini Wirahardikusumah, Ph.D. said, "The Ganesa Widya Jasa Adiutama award is a form of our appreciation for the long-term and sustainable commitment and support contributed by Huawei to ensure that ITB graduates are always exposed to the latest developments in the ICT world and understand how to maximize the latest technology. We hope that the synergistic collaboration between ITB and Huawei can be built even more closely in the future in order to produce highly competent digital talents and contribute to the progress of Indonesia."


Meanwhile, Jacky Chen, CEO of Huawei Indonesia said that the Ganesa Widya Jasa Adiutama award given by ITB to Huawei was very meaningful, especially in encouraging Huawei to continue its commitment to advance research and development (R&D), innovation, and increase digital talent competence in Indonesia.


Jacky said,“Huawei has been present in Indonesia for more than 22 years. Until now, Huawei's commitment to continue to be directly involved in the development of the ICT ecosystem in the country has never subsided. We will continue to work closely with our partners in education, including ITB. Apart from being a form of embodiment of Huawei I DO's vision and mission, this collaboration is very important for us to produce at least 100 thousand digital talents by 2025. At Huawei we believe that digital talent competence is one of the key factors for the optimal implementation of cutting-edge technology that will determine the strength of Indonesia's competitiveness in the global arena."


ITB's partnership with Huawei in education and research has been going on since 2013. Some of Huawei's contributions to ITB include the establishment of the Huawei ICT Academy and Huawei ICT Academy Support Center, construction of laboratories equipped with switches, routers, and firewalls, curriculum development, certification lecturers, and direct student guidance through various annual programs such as the Huawei ICT Competition and Seeds for the Future. It is estimated that ITB trains nearly 200 students annually with Huawei. While in the field of research, Huawei and ITB collaborate in the field of research on 5G technology, AI, and other cutting-edge technologies.


In addition, ITB has also won several prestigious national and international events held by Huawei, and received recognition as the National Excellent Huawei ICT Academy and Global Excellent University in 2020. In 2021, student representatives from ITB won the best title in the Huawei ICT world competition after previously winning the two best titles in the Network and Cloud categories at the Asia Pacific level, and this year also managed to repeat its achievements.


"We also want to congratulate ITB for the achievements it has made again in the Huawei ICT Competition 2022. We encourage the next generations to continue to participate in this educational event so that they can gain and deepen the knowledge that has been gained in the college environment, so that they will become talents in the future. "Excellent digital talent, the pride of the alma mater who is able to play a role as a contributor to the progress of the nation," said Jacky.


Huawei is also set to hold its flagship Seeds for the Future 2022 in Thailand in August where one of ITB students is among the 10 Indonesian best fellows having been selected to represent Indonesia to join the program.


"Coinciding with its 102nd anniversary, Huawei also believes and hopes that ITB will always be a leading higher education institution in the fields of science, technology, social, and culture," Jacky asserted.


Aside from digital talent development, Huawei has also launched the acceleration program Spark in 2020 with the aim to promote and initiate collaboration to boost start-up development in Indonesia in order to scale up, benefit, and accelerate the digital economy. The program is also meant to promote the growth of the Huawei ecosystem, considering Huawei has access to 197 companies on the Global Fortune 500 list in addition that Huawei App Store and Cloud Marketplace currently grant access to 700 million Huawei Mobile and Cloud users globally therefore users can benefit from the ecosystem to sell to Huawei, sell with Huawei and sell through Huawei.

Currently, 40+ startups are participating the program with 1,000 others in the pipeline.

Under the program, Huawei will invest over $100 million in the next three years.
