Msheireb Downtown Doha, the smartest and most sustainable fully built city district in the world and Qatar’s destination for leisure, living and business, is intended to become home to Huawei’s Smart Experience Centre in Qatar.
The announcement was made during a signing ceremony between Msheireb Properties, the developer of Msheireb Downtown Doha (MDD), and Huawei who is a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices.
This agreement aligns with the vision set for Msheireb Downtown Doha to be a city of firsts, constantly bringing into the country the latest and smartest technology solutions. For Huawei, this co-operation with the national real estate developer will help the company in expanding its presence locally and increasing its market share.
Ali al-Kuwari, Acting CEO of Msheireb Properties, said: “Msheireb Downtown Doha is all about connectivity and smart living. We have promised our tenants and visitors an experience like no other, and we are currently embarking on partnerships to ensure we fulfil that. Our work with Huawei will witness the development of their smart experience centre in the country, which is only telling of the trust that international companies have in our infrastructure. We are very happy with this venture and we look forward to announce it’s opening soon.”
Frank Fan, CEO of Huawei Technologies LLC, said: “It is an exciting cooperation indeed. The Huawei brand has a large customer following in Qatar, and the smart experience centre will give visitors the opportunity to experience some of Huawei’s leading technologies such as 5G, AI, cloud products and solutions that Huawei integrates into its unique Cloud-Pipe-Device strategy targeted at driving digitalisation and empowering customers. That’s why it’s vitally important to solidify our presence and increase our footprint. We are excited that our collaboration with Msheireb Properties will further support us in achieving this goal.”
