YANGON - Chinese giant telecommunication equipment company, Huawei, launched a program Thursday to send 10 outstanding students from Myanmar to learn the culture and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in China.

Under the program of "Seeds for the Future", the selected students to be sent to China to study in the Huawei Office, are from the Yangon University of Computer Science and Thanlyin Technological University.

Huawei signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Myanmar's Ministry of Transport and Communication on cooperation in ICT development and founded its Network Academy in Yangon's Thanlyin Technological University last year.

According to Zhang Liman, chief executive officer of Huawei Myanmar, as a drive to push Myanmar's ICT development, the company plans to enter another MoU for a five-year project with Yangon regional government for ICT Talent Development.

U Win Khaing Moe, director general from Research and Innovation Department of Myanmar's Ministry of Education, expressed his gratitude to Huawei for Myanmar's ICT development.

Since the program was launched in 2008, over 2,700 students from 96 nations across the world have been sent to China by the company for studying.
