The parties agreed to jointly implement initiatives aimed at developing technologies for the production and distribution of media content, including through the use of specialized mobile platforms.
“The signing of an agreement with Huawei, one of the leaders in the global communications market, will be a significant step in developing and strengthening the common information space of Russia and China,” Rossiya Segodnya’s head of international cooperation, Vasily Pushkov, said after the signing ceremony. He noted that the media group has been working on developing ties with China for several years now.
“Huawei seeks to create a single ecosystem for the convenience of users around the world. We are pleased to offer our latest technological solutions to Russian users, and the signing of an agreement with Rossiya Segodnya is another step on the path to success,” the president of Huawei’s Russia division, Leo Lee, stated.
