2019 Annual Report (^83)
Industrial policy recommendations
Huawei researches and consults
on industrial policy, and offers
recommendations to world governments
on developing their local ICT sector.
As an active participant in the digital
economy, we also engage with
international research into digital rules
and digital governance to help spur
ongoing growth.
We regularly engage with governments and industry
regulators around the world so that we can bolster
growth in the ICT industry by jointly addressing key
policy issues.
■ We are active participants in national discussions
on strategies for the digital economy. Examples
include our involvement in supporting strategy
development for the rollout of all-optical networks
in China and Europe; and helping countries such as
Myanmar, Bangladesh, and Tanzania make plans
for efficiently allocating their Universal Service
Funds (USFs).
■ We work with telecom carriers in the UK to
maintain dialogue with the Department for Digital,
Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) and Ofcom, the
UK’s communications regulator. These discussions
focus on industry policies (e.g., spectrum allocation
and future networks), new Telecoms Security
Requirements (TSR), and the Statement of Strategic
Priorities (SSP) for the telecom sector.
■ We participate in public consultations in Germany
with various digital policy committees, conferences,
institutions, and ministries, and have engaged
in discussions on digital policies through various
channels, including:
● The Federal Association for Information
Technology, Telecommunications and
New Media (Bitkom), the Association of
Telecommunications and Value-Added Service
Providers (VATM), the German Broadband
Association (BREKO), the Federal Fiber Optic
Connection Association (BUGLAS), and the
Association of the Internet Industry (eco).
● We have also regularly participated in public
consultations and technical discussions with
the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA), Federal
Ministry of the Interior (BMI), and Federal
Office for Information Security (BSI).
■ We set up the Huawei Cyber Security Transparency
Centre in Brussels, Belgium, with the mission of
building a trustworthy digital environment for all.
Through this facility, we have worked more closely
with regulators, standards organizations, and
customers on security standards, verification, and
security innovation. We are building security along
the entire value chain, with verification to enable
mutual trust.
We actively participate in setting digital rules and
shaping digital governance, to help build an open, fair,
and inclusive business environment that drives the
digital economy forward.
■ We conducted forward-looking research on AI
ethics and governance with research teams from
the TUM Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence
(IEAI), the Alan Turing Institute, University College
London, and the EU’s High-Level Expert Group on
Artificial Intelligence (AI HLEG).
■ We published a series of recommendations for
AI governance in a report entitled Responsible
AI: Building a Trustworthy Intelligent World. In
this report, we share Huawei’s principles and best
practices for AI governance:
● We aim to build inclusive and responsible AI for
the social good.
● We adhere to the principles of transparency and
fairness to ensure the security and reliability of
our AI products, services, and processes.
● We ensure the controllability and legitimacy of
AI, and promote the healthy development of
AI through multilateral and open collaboration
while balancing innovation and regulation. This
will ensure the shared success of all parties.
■ We worked with leading global industry
organizations to develop a white paper on industry
digital transformation through the Global Industry
Organizations (GIO). In this paper, we shared
industry insights and the best practices of each
organization, and developed a consensus on the
need for alignment between organizations. This
project has helped to develop an open forum for
debate in the industry.
