Huawei Transfers Technology and Knowledge in Malaysian TVET Education

SHENZHEN: Huawei has agreed to assist Malaysia in focusing efforts to empower technical and vocational education and training (TVET) through advanced technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IOT), and robotics.

Speaking at a press conference after witnessing the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Universiti Kuala Lumpur’s British Malaysia Institute (UniKL BMI) and Huawei on Friday, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi stated that the transfer of technology and knowledge will primarily involve TVET educators and students in Malaysia.

Ahmad Zahid expressed satisfaction with Huawei’s commitment in Malaysia, noting that Huawei has been established in the country for 23 years and has introduced several new technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), which is relatively new in Malaysia.

Regarding further collaboration with Huawei, he mentioned that the organization will open new premises and establish Malaysia as its headquarters for the Asia-Pacific region.

“Through this new administrative center, we find Huawei’s commitment to create approximately 6,000 new job opportunities for Malaysians involved in the 5G system already introduced in China, which is also being brought to Malaysia,” he said.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also the Minister of Rural and Regional Development, is on an official visit to the republic following an invitation from China’s Deputy Prime Minister, Ding Xuexiang.
