According to BelTA the Chinese company Huawei does not rule out that it may implement the project Safe City in Minsk. The statement was made during the meeting of Deputy Premier of Belarus Anatoly Tozik and the top management of the company Bel Huawei Technologies which represents the company’s interests in Belarus.
The sides discussed the development of cooperation. “In particular, Director General of the company Zhang Dongliang confirmed the company’s interest in the creation of a smart transport system in Minsk and in the implementation of the Safe City project in the future,” the press service noted.
Safe City is a software complex featuring a number of video analysis solutions that help quickly respond to any emergencies and take measures to alleviate their consequences. Huawei already has experience in implementing similar projects not only in China but also abroad (Dushanbe, Chisinau and other cities).
It was noted that the company is in search of a reliable Belarusian partner who could help expand its activities in Belarus, including the development of joint solutions and the establishment of joint manufacturing. Besides, Huawei is working to register a subsidiary in the Chinese-Belarusian Industrial Park in order to set up new production facilities there.
