It followed an opening ceremony officiated by the Officer in Charge of Education at the Embassy of Kenya in China, Reuben Augut. August commended Huawei for taking practical steps in capacity development for Kenyans students. He also commended China on being in the lead in terms of ICT and development and urged the students to export and implement the skills learned back to Kenya. The students have settled in for their language and culture training at the Beijing Culture and Language University. In addition to their training, the students will have an extensive city tour having visiting the Great Wall of China among other places thus giving them an authentic experience of the Chinese history and culture. After completing the language and culture training the nine will then proceed to the Huawei University in Shenzhen to receive training in cutting edge technology on 5G, LTE, and cloud computing whilst visiting the state of the art Huawei labs.
