Digital technology is reshaping the world and driving future development. How can we adapt to this rapidly changing environment? How can we more effectively promote digital inclusion, and ensure that every person and organization can benefit from the changes technology brings?

We will try to answer these questions at this year's digital inclusion summit, "How Inclusive Innovation Can Empower the World". This summit will be held at the Banquet Hall (Gold Hall) of the Shanghai Expo Center at 14:00–15:30, September 18. We will invite Huawei partners, as well as representatives from international organizations, government agencies, and NGOs, to join us and discuss how we can create more universal value with digital technology. We will share case studies on how digital technology can be used to benefit every person, home, and organization in order to promote sustainable social and economic development, and build a fully connected, intelligent world.

We cordially invite you to this year's digital inclusion summit – How Inclusive Innovation Can Empower the World, to discuss how we can bring the benefits of technology to everyone.
