PLANO, Texas, Nov. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei Technologies CTO of its Carrier Business Group, Paul Scanlan, will join a roster of global thought leaders and executives at the Financial Times ′ second annual Global Boardroom event.

Scanlan will participate in the panel discussion titled, “Tech’s Big Moment: Have new forms of infrastructure become critical to business recovery?” on Friday, November 13 at 3 p.m. ET, which will focus on how the overnight switch to remote work put immense pressure and responsibility on new forms of tech infrastructure such as cloud computing and 5G networks.

Information and communications technology (ICT) have become a cornerstone of modern society and the main driver behind sustainable social, economic, and environmental development. Moreover, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, fixed broadband has played an important role in getting work, production, education, and the economy back on track. Huawei believes that rapid and healthy development within the ICT industry will rely on open collaboration and mutual trust across the global industry, so it will continue working closely with global partners and using its innovative ICT technologies to create greater value for customers.
