Connecting the Future

ICT (Information and communication technology) has played a major role as an engine and enabler of economic and social progress in recent decades, delivering multiple benefits to society. Huawei introduces a white paper that seeks to explore the relationship between ICT and sustainable development. Specifically, the seminar will investigate SDGs which potentially have a strong relationship to ICT, and thus are most likely to be achieved by 2030 with support from ICT. It will provide a seminal study that explores country performance on SDGs and ICT development, that can provide insights on the successful application of ICT for sustainable development. The report highlights lessons from national initiatives with country case studies.
