          In the past 3 years, Huawei's collaboration with its 1,900+ partners generated more than 45,000 work positions in its suppliers' companies. More than 125,000 telecom engineers were trained in the region, with over 98,000 receiving professional certifications. Huawei implemented more than 300 quality system inspections at its mainstream partners, helping over 130 companies pass ISO or other relevant certifications.
"Southeast Asia is an emerging market, and a powerful engine that connects innovation and business. Huawei and its partners in the region complement each other superbly. Value creation and sharing across the entire industry chain is our future. We should combine our excellent resource capabilities and create a collection of high-quality resources to improve our competitiveness together," explained Mr. James Wu.

At Huawei and TKC, we go the extra mile for clients, excellence and customer loyalty is a reward in itself."
          Mr. Jason Feng, Global Strategic Account Manager at Cummins, the world's leading industrial engine manufacturer, declared: "Because of the strategic vision that makes people's lives better by unleashing the power of a unified and strong partnership, Huawei and Cummins have joined a Global Cooperation Agreement since 2008.
