With Huawei having hosted its third annual Asia-Pacific Innovation Day in Kuala Lumpur, the firm announced its plans to open a new OpenLab within Malaysia.

This year’s event saw over 200 technology officials, leaders, scholars and innovators in attendance with a focus upon accelerating digital transformation within the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region - something that the OpenLab will aim to facilitate.

The OpenLab will offer an open and secure platform for innovation in collaboration with local partners, something that has similarly been done with Huawei’s OpenLabs in Munich, Mexico, Dubai, Singapore and China.

“We need to collaborate more broadly and share views across the ecosystem, including between industries and universities worldwide,” said Huaewei’s Deputy Chairman of the Board, Guo Ping.

“Close collaboration between industry and academia will help ensure a thriving digital economy. As always, Huawei remains committed to the Asia-Pacific region, and will continue working with our partners to drive digital economic growth and ensure a better-connected future for all of APAC.”

During the event, co-hosted by Malaysia's Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI), the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), the Malaysia-China Business Council, Huawei also signed memorandum of understandings (MoUs) with a number of key institutions and organisations.

This included the SME corporation of Malaysia, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Terengganu State Government, and Cybersecurity Malaysia, all in support of promoting regional digital transformation
