Liu Fei, the firm's chief technology officer, said development of ICT supports other sectors like manufacturing.

"We believe in ICT development, not only because it ensures informatisation and industrialisation, but also as a way to reduce the digital divide, strengthen the national power, enhance international influence, as well as guarantee national security and drive growth," he said.

He said the firm was impressed by Rwanda's support for ICT innovation. "We wish to be part of this story that inspiring great innovations.
