"The fundamental reason for Huawei's success is our core values - being customer-centric, treating our dedicated employees as the foundation. With our customers, we have established 28 joint innovation centers, enabling our technologies to create business value directly for them."
Meng also highlighted how Huawei honours its dedicated employees for their commitment by providing greater rewards and opportunities. For example, she outlined how employees have overcome extremely harsh conditions on Mount Qomolangma (Mount Everest) and the 74-degree-north-latitude North Pole.
"Our employees have left clear footprints; from the east of the Pacific to the west of the Atlantic, from the north of the Arctic Ocean to the Southern point of South America, from the high plateaus of Bolivia to the low lands of the Dead Sea," she said. "In all these places there are Huawei employees serving our customers, making people's dreams of communication come true through the deployment of 3G and LTE networks. Customer-centricity has become part of our corporate DNA."
"Over the past six years, the global economy has gone through numerous ups and downs, and the financial crisis is still with us," she said, commenting on the current economic climate. "To get through it, there won't be a U-turn, rather, the changes will be in spiral form. The global economy will be further integrated and form a complete chain, with all parts being interdependent. If one part has a problem, a domino effect will occur and a negative cycle will begin again. Therefore, we should all work together to ensure a stable financial foundation."
