Work on Huawei R&D campus soon

 It will move its entire Bangalore operations into the new facility. The 20-acre campus will also have a residential complex for its employees.

Briefing reporters, Huawei Technologies Global Head of Communications Ross Gan said, the company, which has its biggest R&D development facility outside of China in Bangalore with 2,000 people, sees India as important market for its future growth. Incidentally, the company completed 10 years in India recently.

Having grown into global player in the field of telecommunications, Huawei is in the process of absorbing more and more non-Chinese executives into its fold. “A true multi-national company cannot afford to conduct its operations only in Mandarin. That is why were are internationalising and standardising our  work culture,” said Core Network Marketing Director Ron Raffensperger. “We are making rapid strides in our efforts in localising our workforce in most of the markets we operate. In India, 98 per cent of our staff is Indian. You will soon see non-Chinese executives occupying decision-making posts,” he added.
Meanwhile, Ross said, following repeated security concerns raised by several countries including India, Huawei has decided to be more open in its operations globally. “We are looking at third party certification and independent auditing among other things to allay fears,” he added.

Its efforts follows BSNL cancelling order worth $2 billion after imposition of anti-dumping duties on telecom equipment vendors including Huawei. Though New Delhi cleared the deal later, issues concerning security haunted the company.
