"Tanzania has enjoyed a great relationship with Huawei Tanzania, and have previously partnered with them on many projects successfully. With its innovation in ICT fields, Huawei did a great contribution to Tanzania," the minister was quoted as saying.

Mbarawa said that the signing of the agreement will further encourage and promote the technologies transfer between Huawei and Tanzania.

The report said that major players in the ICT sector, including the government, governmental agencies and private sector, gathered to attend the Huawei Cloud Conference, which was hosted by Huawei Tanzania and the Ministry of Communication, Science and Technology of Tanzania.

The conference outlined the strategies of the East African country to achieve its millennium development goals, which was set out in "Vision 2015 by Empowering Tanzania Through ICT."

Huawei also presented its strategy to build better connections in Tanzania through the improvement and promotion of ICT knowledge and awareness to the government, academic institutions and the public, as well as focusing on infrastructure, capacity building, policy and legal framework and public relations activities on ICT.
