Huawei Recognised for Championing Singapore’s National Digital for Life Movement


[Singapore, July 05, 2024] Huawei, leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, has been recognised as one of the Digital for Life (DfL) Champions. The award was presented by President Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Patron of the DfL movement, to Maxi Wang, Chief Executive Officer of Huawei International, during an appreciation event organised by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA). The event was hosted by Minister for Communications and Information, Mrs Josephine Teo.

This accolade is part of the national DfL movement, which mobilises partners from the private, people and public sectors to help Singaporeans embrace digital as a lifelong pursuit and enrich their lives through digital technology. It recognises Huawei’s significant and diverse contributions to the DfL movement through the company’s Singapore-oriented Tech4City initiatives, from annual competitions for young adults and continuous community engagements on digital literacy promotion for neighborhoods.

“We are deeply honored to be recognised as a Digital for Life Champion as a long-term partner of the Digital for Life movement,” said Maxi Wang, Chief Executive Officer of Huawei International. “This recognition is a testament to our ongoing commitment to support Singapore’s efforts in paving the way towards a shared, sustainable future with cutting-edge technologies. Together, we are building a more resilient and forward-thinking nation, equipped to tackle the challenges of tomorrow.”

Huawei’s Tech4City initiative is a comprehensive programme aiming to bring technology for Care, Inclusion, Talent, and Youth (CITY) – a framework designed to focus on the key pillars of the nation's future, and encourage everyone to contribute to a more purposeful and meaningful success by helping others with technologies. It is in support of the national DfL movement.

As a part of the broader program, Huawei has also partnered with local academies and communities through its Huawei ICT Academy programme, lab visits and overseas learning journeys to nurture young community members on AI and Cloud technologies with an aim to support building a robust technology ecosystem for the country.

Notably, as an advocate partner for the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore’s SG Cyber Safe Partnership Programme, Huawei also partners with Association of Information Security Professionals and People’s Association to promote awareness about scams to foster a safer cyberspace for all.
