Wu Qingwen, member of the Standing Committee of CPC Suzhou Committee and secretary of CPC SIP Working Committee, and his contingent visited Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei’s research institute in SIP on Mar 23 for a survey on its operations amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak.
It is learnt that Huawei started construction on the research institute in 2012. It is one of the company’s four major R&D research facilities in East China, with a total floor area of about 760,000 square meters. Part of the project has been put into use, while the rest is expected to come into service at the end of this year. The institute is now running well despite of a short closure earlier due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
In the visit, Wu and the other officials had a tour around the institute’s offices, laboratories and innovation center and gained a comprehensive understanding of its current development and future plans. Wu encouraged Huawei to seek breakthroughs in the development of AI, 5G, big data and other advanced technologies and promised that SIP authorities will spare no effort to give it support and help.
