Huawei to participate in European Parliament 5G Roundtable

Last updated:

Huawei will be participating in a 5G Roundtable in the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Wednesday 18 December.

The Roundtable, entitled “5G in the EU: Opportunities & Challenges on the Verge of the 2nd Digital Revolution”, will take place from 16.00 to 18.00 in Room LOW N3.1 in the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

The platform of young pro-European parliamentarians, EU40, and MEPs Eva Kaili (S&D) and Franc Bogovič (EPP) are hosting the event, which will explore the opportunities and challenges brought by the introduction of 5G networks in the EU.

Digital storyteller Dan Sobovitz will chair the debate, which will also involve Abraham Liu, Huawei’s Chief Representative to the European Institutions; Pearse O’Donohue, Director for the Future Networks Directorate at the European Commission’s DG CONNECT; Steve Purser, Head of Core Operations at ENISA, the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, as well as top executives from Siemens, Orange and France Digitale.

“5G marks the beginning of a second Digital Revolution,” said Abraham Liu ahead of the event:

“It will see Smart Cities and rural connectivity spring up all over Europe, leading to a wide range of new business models and improved productivity that will drive the European economy to new heights. The introduction of 5G is also an opportunity for Europe to assert its technological sovereignty. Huawei wants to help Europe achieve true digital sovereignty in terms of data protection, citizens’ privacy and cybersecurity”.

Abraham Liu added:

“Huawei’s 5G is also greener than any other previous technology. While transferring data, it consumes just 10 percent of the energy that 4G uses. 5G will also be vital to enabling the efficient introduction of a broad range of industrial platforms that can contribute to reducing carbon emissions in the future.”
