Turkey's dominant cellphone operator Turkcell and Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei are to deepen efforts to develop 5G technology, as well as concentrating on domestic production and mutual R&D work, Turkcell said on Monday.
Both companies, which have been working together for two years on 4.5G and 5G technologies, signed a deal during President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's recent official visit to China.
Turkcell board chairman Ahmet Akca said such long-term cooperation would see Turkey develop and produce its own technologies in every field.
Huawei's senior vice chair Tian Feng said that the firm regarded Turkey as an important center, connecting Asia and Europe:
"Owing to our trust in Turkey's strong economy and talented, young and dynamic human resource, we established our second-biggest software and research and development center in Turkey."
"We will increase our investments in this country," the Huawei executive added.
Founded in 1987 and headquartered in China’s Shenzhen city, Huawei has 15 research institutes and centers and 36 joint innovation centers around the world.
