Chinese multinational technology company Huawei has partnered with Kuwait’s Central Agency for Information Technology (CAIT) to train the IT talents in the country’s public sector.

The collaboration between Huawei and CAIT is intended to support IT talents in government sectors through various initiatives, including an online training platform and free exam opportunities. Furthermore, it involves Arabic-based training in cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and other advanced Huawei-compliant technologies to facilitate digital transformation and empower multiple talents.

With the professional training and certifications, employees within the public sector’s IT divisions will have the knowledge, skills, and understanding to develop and implement next-generation intelligent solutions that will elevate Kuwait and propel its digitalization journey.

“Investments in talent development are equally as important to realizing digitalization goals as building physical infrastructure. An intelligent society requires individuals who are digitally savvy, and who have the qualifications to understand not only how the latest technologies work, but how best to deploy them to benefit all members of society. Huawei is committed to enhancing the ICT talent ecosystem and is pleased to work with CAIT to help build digital talent within Kuwait’s public sector.”

Haya Alwadani, General Director of CAIT said, “The events of 2020 have demonstrated how important technology is to ensure that our society remains stable in any number of situations. Kuwait’s digital transformation is an essential endeavor that will not only enable us to realize an intelligent, technology-driven society, but to enhance socio-economic growth and increase sustainability throughout the country.”

“Given Huawei’s extensive experience as a world-leading developer of technology as well as a well-established provider of ICT education, they were the natural choice for us to partner with for this initiative,” she added.
