In pursuit of establishing a robust ICT ecosystem in the country, Huawei has organized "Seeds For The Future" in Bangladesh for the 10th consecutive year.
This year saw over 600 applications submitted. The top 20 students were chosen for the final round based on their profiles, concepts, and presentation quality.
Out of the top 20, the six victors were selected following numerous interviews and presentations centered around the theme of empowering society with ICT.
Commenting on this initiative, Jason Li, Board Member and Director of Public Affairs and Communications for Huawei South Asia, stated, "Huawei's 'Seeds For The Future' Initiative aims to empower Bangladesh's youth with ICT knowledge. We all recognize that ICT is the future. Through this visit to China, students will gain real-time insights into the ICT industry and how it can benefit society. Our ultimate goal with 'Seeds For The Future' is to empower young people so that they can steer Bangladesh towards a smarter future. I extend my best wishes to this year's winners for their journey."
It is worth noting that "Seeds for the Future" is Huawei's globally recognized flagship program, nurturing digital talent for 15 years. Globally, over 15,000 students have benefited from this initiative. In Bangladesh, the program supports students to become part of a thriving ICT ecosystem that Huawei is diligently constructing. Such initiatives will expedite Bangladesh's journey towards a 'Smart Bangladesh' while ensuring that the youth receive the right opportunities to refine their skills and propel Bangladesh into a new era of digital transformation.
