Huawei and African Union increase cooperation

Huawei and the African Union have signed a draft agreement to reinforce cooperation in various areas including 5G communications, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and high-speed networks. This agreement between Huawei and the African Union is in line with a previous agreement signed in 2015. Huawei is currently in a dispute with the United States due to its leadership in developing 5G equipment for mobile phone networks where the US has accused the telecommunications provider of providing equipment that jeopardise national security.
