Huawei will create 110 new jobs and invest $80 million in Ireland for R&D




Huawei said that it has plans to expand the manpower in Ireland by opening 110 new jobs in the coming two years. The company has also planned to invest $80 million in Research and Development to further strengthen its business.

The new jobs project will come under the IDA Ireland and project for locations across Dublin, Cork, and Athlone. Huawei mentioned that these recruitments are opened to help the company in the rollout of 5G services across Ireland.

“Huawei has a long-term commitment to Ireland, where since 2004 we have built a world-class team servicing our ever-growing consumer and enterprise customer bases,” says Huawei Ireland chief executive Tony Yangxu

In the past 15 months, Huawei has created 200 jobs and currently, it has 480 employees in Ireland. However, the investment plans come at a significant time for Huawei which had been targeted by the administration of former US President Donald Trump.

Back in 2019, the Trump government added Huawei into the entity-list and restricts US companies to do business with Chinese tech giants. He also led the global campaign to convince allies to exclude it from their 5G networks.
