Chinese group Huawei plans to provide urban security solutions to Mozambique

4 May 2015

Chinese group Huawei is able to provide technological solutions to ensure safety in some of Mozambique’s cities, the group’s director for Eastern and Southern Africa said recently in Cape Town.

Li Peng, who spoke a few days ago at a conference of safe cities in Africa held in Cape Town, South Africa, said supplying security devices would depend to a large extent on the wishes of the Mozambican authorities .

The conference, which was attended by over 400 people, was intended to promote the exchange of ideas, development trends and worldwide success stories about public security in cities and to discuss ways to reduce crime and enhance security through solutions based on information and communication technologies.

Li Peng said the Huawei group was interested in working with African partners to deliver innovative solutions to their countries that would “help build safer and more harmonious business environments, tourism and urban residential areas to attract investment and increase employment for sustainable economic development.”

“Countries around the world are formulating plans for the development of safe and smart cities to seize the new opportunities generated by global urbanisation,” added the head of the group for Eastern and Southern Africa, cited by Mozambican daily newspaper Notícias. (macauhub/MZ)
