Finally, Hervé Huot-Marchand, head of UNESCO’s section for youth, literacy, and skills development, praised Huawei for its position as a crucial partner and contributor to the organization’s Global Education Coalition, which aims to increase the digital abilities of young people all around the globe. One of the few worldwide initiatives that can link young people and foster creativity on such a big scale, enabling them to contribute and add more value to the digital society, is the Huawei ICT Competition.
Despite the ongoing epidemic, this year’s Huawei ICT Competition attracted more contestants than ever before. By forming talent partnerships, incorporating talent standards, enhancing talent capabilities, and showcasing the value of talent, Huawei wants to continue developing education, industry, and public talent ecosystems in the future.
