Tempo Interactive, Shenzhen: Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., a telecommunications solution company from China, will not only sell its products at cheap prices.

However, according to Fu Jun, Huawei’s global spokesperson, the company’s products are as competitive of those of other companies.

This was in response to suspicion that this Chinese manufacturer has always offered cheap products of low quality.

Jun explained that cheap prices were made possible by efficient product processing.

For instance, said Jung, there were only 25 persons that produce chipsets in the manufacturing division, with robots handling almost all tasks.

In fact, this company has operated in 100 countries including the USA, France, Spain and Japan.

“We have also patented around 16,000 products,” said Jun in Shenzhen last week.

This was also the basis of the cheap price: not having to spend out on copyright payments.

Huawei is the Chinese company with the most amount of its own patented inventions.

Ninety percent of the 16,000 products were Huawei's inventions and 48 percent of its 44,000 employees worked in the company’s research and development division.

Last year, Huawei acquired contracts value at US$8.2 billion.

“This year, we estimate that the total will be US$11 billion,” said Jun.

In Indonesia, Huawei signed a contract with PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk last month.

Together with another Chinese company, China ZTE, Huawei won the tender for the code division multiple access project worth Rp722 billion.
