Chinese telco in massive Malaysian rollout
Chinese mobile maker Huawei is to open 600 outlets across Malaysia this year.
The company plans 100 branded stores and 500 promotional kiosks.
It hopes the massive rollout will help it become one of Malaysia’s top three mobile vendors within two years and turn the market into its Asia Pacific hub. It currently runs a data centre in Medini, Iskandar Malaysia.
Huawei entered Malaysia in 2011 and currently has just 26 brand stores there. The company said it has been steadily building its presence in the local consumer market through the introduction of a range of mobile devices.
“Malaysia has a great mobile ecosystem compared to other countries in the region such as Indonesia and we plan to expand further here,” said Huawei consumer business group country director Gary Xu.
