Huawei announced on December 17 in Hanoi that the company has ranked 61st on the Fortune Global 500 list this year, representing an 11-point jump from last year and an impressive 68-point leap from 2017 thanks to its good business results.
The impressive jumps are attributed to the better business performance of Huawei. In the first three quarters of this year, Huawei achieved a growth rate of 24.4 per cent and a turnover of about $85.675 billion. The company has signed more than 60 5G commercial contracts with the world's leading carriers and shipped more than 400,000 5G base stations around the world, maintaining the No.1 5G market share.
5G will bring mobile to a new level," said Michael MacDonald, chief digital officer of Huawei Southeast Asia. “Studies show that by 2025, the number of people using 5G technology will reach 1.57 billion, and 5G will contribute $289 billion to the global GDP by 2025.”

Huawei is also involved in the implementation of more than 160 smart city and more than 700 safe city projects worldwide.
In just the first nine months, Huawei sold more than 185 million smartphone products, achieving a 26 per cent growth. The Huawei Mate 30pro flagship product line sold seven million units worldwide. Huawei Watch GT2 smartwatch sold one million units within 45 days.

With a firm commitment to globalisation, we will remain open and collaborate for shared success. I have no doubt that we will achieve what we have set out to do: to bring digital to every person, home, and organisation for a fully connected, intelligent world.”
