Ideals are not enough. We also need new theory. Ideals give us a vision, and theory gives us the means to achieve it. Over the next 10 to 20 years, we must boldly explore new technological concepts, mathematical models, and algorithms, and in doing so provide society with new theoretical approaches in these areas. In the future, networks will be standardized, simplified, and easy to use. We must broaden our horizons, have a global view, and work together to create value. We must build networks on globally unified standards. And we need to make our contribution to the concepts, theory, and architecture of future data transmission.

—Guo Ping, Rotating and Acting CEO

Information technology has grown beyond the confines of its own industry to drive technological innovation and development across multiple domains. The extent to which a company, organization, or a country embraces digital technology will determine its future competitiveness. In order to enable digital transformation across all industries, drive stable development in the ICT ecosystem, and contribute to social progress, we must foster open collaboration with partners all along the value chain. Throughout this process, Huawei will remain true to its pipe strategy, focusing on ICT infrastructure development to create value for our customers.

—Sun Yafang, Chairwoman of the Board
