Within the Middle East, Huawei has over a decade of regional experience and has maintained consistent double-digit revenue growth in recent years driven by over 3,500 employees working across the company's three core business groups. Rapid growth in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) during 2012 contributed to record Huawei regional sales revenue of $12.42 billion, an increase of 6.1% year-on-year.
The company has worked with top telecom operators in the region deploying several industry firsts, including the Middle East's first ever LTE commercial networks in Saudi Arabia and UAE. The company is already linked with additional operators in Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain on other LTE mobile broadband projects.
Mr. Ren's latest briefing was held as part of a commemoration ceremony for a new agreement in which Huawei was chosen to build an expansive new 4G LTE network for service provider Telecom New Zealand.
