At the HUAWEI CLOUD Chile 2019 Summit, it was announced that its region of Chile is open for business, providing a full-stack cloud platform and a wide range of Artificial Intelligence (AI) services for America.
The digital transformation has featured prominently on Chile's agenda in recent years, and the country introduced advanced technologies such as cloud computing, AI, 5G and submarine cables to boost its economy and improve living standards. As the digital center of Latin America, Chile is a solid base for the new region of HUAWEI CLOUD, which will serve Chile and the rest of Latin America.
Zou Zhilei, president of Huawei's Latin America Region, said: “Huawei has been serving Chile for 16 years and has earned the trust of customers, partners, institutions, universities and governments in the country. The mission of Huawei Cloud here is to create a fertile country environment for companies and governments to digitally transform and improve international competitiveness. ”
