The inaugural function of the data center, built by Huawei was concluded on Tuesday last week. The Senegalese President and Chinese ambassador Xiao Chan were present at the ceremony.

“It will be necessary to proceed to the rapid migration of data hosted abroad or at national level in structures that do not comply with standards in this area”, Said Senegalese President on inaugural ceremony of data center
Talking about the data center, its sponsored by the Export-Import Bank of China (Exim) with a basic capital of 150 million US Dollars. It’ll join the global network by Senegal’s 6,000-km fiber-optic network and an undersea cable chain.
To be mentioned, it’s said that Huawei is working on about 25 projects across Africa at present, which shows the faith of African countries in the technology of Huawei.
African countries are in need of innovative high-level data management technology in order to avoid the security risk of hiring fine-tuned machines from other manufacturers, said Henry Tugendhat- senior policy analyst with the China team.
