Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

The Huawei Con­sumer Busi­ness Group (CBG) in Kuwait launched a road­show of ac­tiv­i­ties in a num­ber of univer­si­ties in Kuwait in ad­di­tion to an ac­ti­va­tion pro­gram in The Av­enues mall. The ac­tiv­i­ties aimed at in­tro­duc­ing the brand’s lat­est tech­nolo­gies and smart­phones to the youth seg­ment of Kuwait.

Jim Zhu, Coun­try Man­ager of Huawei CBG in Kuwait, said: “Huawei con­tin­ues to in­tro­duce prod­ucts that sat­isfy and en­hance the life­style of mod­ern in­di­vid­u­als and specif­i­cally the life­style of the younger seg­ment of our com­mu­nity. This seg­ment wants per­for­mance, flex­i­bil­ity, great pho­tog­ra­phy fea­tures, and high per­form­ing con­nec­tiv­ity to en­sure they are al­ways up-to-date with our fast-pace world. Huawei has just the prod­ucts for them, and we wanted to show­case them in a fun and in­ter­ac­tive man­ner that re­flects our brand and cul­ture.”

Huawei’s road­show cov­ered the Amer­i­can Univer­sity of Kuwait (AUK), the Aus­tralian Col­lege of Kuwait (ACK), Box Hill Col­lege Kuwait, and the Amer­i­can Univer­sity of the Mid­dle East (AUM). The road­show launched as well in The Av­enues mall in the first week univer­si­ties started their se­mes­ter, dur­ing which Huawei fea­tured pro­fes­sional pho­to­graphs taken with a P9 smart­phone as well as hosted the Kuwaiti pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers Ab­du­laziz Al­shayji (@az­izvito) and Nawaf Al-Nas­sar (@85q8) to men­tor vis­i­tors about pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phy us­ing Huawei smart­phones. The var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties al­lowed par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents to win Huawei’s lat­est flag­ship and in­ter­na­tion­ally awarded smart­phones, the Mate 8, Huawei P9 and P9 Plus.

Huawei is also com­mit­ted to nur­ture the next gen­er­a­tion of tal­ent. In Kuwait, Huawei hosts stu­dents from Kuwait Univer­sity in its flag­ship cor­po­rate re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­gram, which seeks to de­velop lo­cal ICT tal­ent, en­hance knowl­edge trans­fers and im­prove the skills and life chances of tal­ented un­der­grad­u­ates. In its third year, Huawei spon­sored 15 Kuwaiti stu­dents in the pro­gram’s 2016 edi­tion held in Huawei’s Shen­zhen cam­pus in China.

Huawei also joined hands with the non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion LOYAC to sup­port its sum­mer pro­gram. The pro­gram, which aims to train the youth in the pri­vate sec­tor, helps build the skills and pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ence of young trainees ahead of the start of their ca­reers. Two Kuwaiti univer­sity stu­dents were trained in the sum­mer of 2016.
