IT firms ramp up presence at Mideast tech fair
    2017-October-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHINESE tech firms have ramped up their presence at the 37th Gitex Technology Week, the biggest information and communication technologies fair in the Middle East, which opened Sunday.

The five-day fair, which has gathered 4,100 exhibitors from more than 70 countries, was estimated to attract over 100,000 visitors.

Notably, more Chinese companies are taking part in the fair this year in a bid to explore opportunities in the Middle East and North Africa, hoping to benefit from the region’s digital transformation.

The annual tech fair has long been a platform for China’s IT giant Huawei, which is showcasing its latest solutions in relation to the Internet of Things, cloud computing and smart city software this year.

“We are seeing opportunities in the region that, as a pioneer of the digital transformation, is reclaiming leadership in innovation,” said Charles Yang, president of Huawei’s Middle East division.

Some small Chinese firms are also taking the chance to market their products in the Middle East and North Africa where statistics show that IT spending is set to grow 2.4 percent in 2017 to reach US$155.8 billion.

“Our mini-robots can help schools and families to improve education of children,” said Mikki Li, sales director for Europe, Middle East and Africa at the Leju Robotics from Shenzhen.

Leju, an intelligent humanoid robot company which produces robots that can function as educational tools for children, is taking part in the fair for the first time.

Li said that since a growing number of schools in the region aim to integrate digital technology and artificial intelligence into their curriculum, his company is confident that they will “find distributors and business partners at Gitex.”

Quanhang Technology, a company from Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, has already cooperated with Dubai police in helping increase road security by using its smart controller solutions.

“The smart controller can be installed near roads and it will take pictures of the car plates of reckless drivers who try to avoid traffic jams by illegally using the hard shoulder,” explained Gary Zhang, the sales manager at Quanhang.(Xinhua)
