The partnership deal was signed by Batelco chairman Shaikh Hamad Bin Abdulla Al Khalifa and Huawei general manager (Batelco Group Account) Wang Jiangning in the presence of Qi Zhenhong, the Chinese ambassador to Bahrain, and Batelco Bahrain CEO Muna Al Hashemi.

As part of the collaboration Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, will be the technology strategic partner of Batelco during the show.

Welcoming Huawei onboard, Al Hashemi said: "Hosting an event of such major significance is very important to the economy of Bahrain as it attracts large numbers of business visitors from the region and further afield. We have been very impressed with the previous events and look forward to participating once again."

Jiangning said that as a strategic partner of Batelco, Huawei strives to be at the forefront of ICT innovations in the region and is always delighted to collaborate with the Bahraini group.
