The memorandum reaffirms an existing one-year healthy relationship between both entities, a handout shared by Huawei Pakistan said on Thursday.
Briefing about the project, the handout said that the parties will work together on the key projects known as smart forests and others under RUDA which will act as a developer and Huawei will be the lead technology partner.
