Huawei releases its 2020 Annual Report

Huawei has released its 2020 Annual Report. Growth slowed, but the company’s business performance was largely in line with forecast.  Huawei’s sales revenue in 2020 rounded off at CNY891.4 billion, up 3.8% year-on-year,  and its net profit reached CNY64.6 billion, up 3.2% year-on-year. 

Despite operational difficulties brought about by US sanctions in 2019 and 2020, Huawei  has continued to invite KPMG to independently and objectively audit our financial  statements. The document produced by KPMG is a standard unmodified audit opinion. No  matter the circumstances, we will continue to embrace transparency by disclosing  operational data to governments, customers, suppliers, employees, and partners. 

In 2020, Huawei’s carrier business continued to ensure the stable operations of more than  1,500 networks across more than 170 countries and regions, which helped support  telework, online learning, and online shopping throughout COVID-19 lockdowns. Working  together with carriers around the world, the company helped provide a superior  connected experience and moved forward with more than 3,000 5G innovation projects  in over 20 industries like coal mining, steel production, ports, and manufacturing. 

Over the past year, Huawei’s enterprise business stepped up efforts to develop innovative  scenario-based solutions for different industries and create a digital ecosystem that  thrives on joint creation and shared success. During the pandemic, Huawei provided  technical expertise and solutions that were vital in the fight against the virus. One example  is an AI-assisted diagnostic solution based on HUAWEI CLOUD that helped hospitals the  world over reduce the burden on their medical infrastructure. Huawei also worked with  partners to launch cloud-based online learning platforms for more than 50 million primary and secondary school students. 

With the rollout of HarmonyOS and the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) ecosystem,  Huawei’s consumer business moved forward with its Seamless AI Life strategy (“1 + 8 +  N”) to provide consumers with an intelligent experience across all devices and scenarios,  focusing on smart office, fitness & health, smart home, easy travel, and entertainment. 

“Over the past year we’ve held strong in the face of adversity,” said Ken Hu, Huawei’s  Rotating Chairman. “We’ve kept innovating to create value for our customers, to help  fight the pandemic, and to support both economic recovery and social progress around  the world. We also took this opportunity to further enhance our operations, leading to a  performance that was largely in line with forecast.” 

Huawei recognizes the importance of creating shared value for society as a whole, and is  working together with partners to support broader economic, social, and environmental  goals for shared progress and prosperity. 

To boost the economic recovery and cultivate the digital ecosystem, Huawei launched the  Spark program in Singapore in 2020 to provide technical support, funding, consulting and  training for tech startups. The 5G Ecosystem Innovation Center in Thailand, supported by  Huawei, has been served as a sandbox for 5G innovations in ASEAN. 

To tackle the workforce challenges, Huawei has launched multiple initiatives in APAC,  including the Huawei ASEAN Academy, Digital Training Bus, and Seeds for the Future  program to provide learning resources and train digital talents. The tech company aims  to develop at least 300,000 ICT talents over the next five years in APAC. 

“We will continue to work closely with our customers and partners to support social  progress, economic growth, and sustainable development,” said Ken Hu.
