Huawei to Open R&D Centres in Switzerland

by swisscham in Business

Huawei plans to massively expand its presence in Switzerland. The Chinese technology giant intends to open two research centres in Zurich and Lausanne. It will also strengthen corporate services. Switzerland is an important location for Huawei, wrote Patrik MŸller in an article for the weekend newspaper Schweiz am Wochenende. MŸller interviewed Eric Xu, CEO of the Chinese smartphone and telecommunications technology giant, during a working visit by Federal Councillor Doris Leuthard to the Huawei headquarters in Shenzhen. Huawei currently employs around 350 people in Switzerland at its site in DŸbendorf in the canton of Zurich, but this will rise considerably in the future: ÒWe will employ more people because we will open R&D centres in Zurich and Lausanne,Ó said Lu. According to the article, the presence of the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology in Zurich and Lausanne was decisive to HuaweiÕs choice of location. Huawei also requires more employees in Switzerland to Òmarket our services for companiesÓ. In Switzerland, telecommunication providers such as Swisscom and Sunrise use Huawei infrastructure and software products.
