Lebanon ranked the first in Huawei's Middle East ICT competition which took place over the weekend in the Chinese city of Shenzhen, a Huawei statement said Monday.

A total of 13 teams of 39 students from across the Middle East competed in the final of the annual competition organized by Huawei, a Chinese tech giant.

The competition attracted more than 21,000 students from 437 colleges and universities in Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

Charles Yang, president of Huawei Middle East, said the Huawei ICT competition aims to develop ICT skills and knowledge among the youth in the region.

The finalists were selected after a three-month qualifying period, during which each competed against their national counterparts to earn a place in the final. Qualifying rounds included working in real ICT laboratories, getting up to date with key technologies such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, big data and 5G.

In this final, teams competed in day-long competitions, which included technology workshops with global ICT experts.

Winners have received the opportunity to conduct field experiments at Huawei's specialized labs and research centers at its global headquarters.

The Lebanese team also ranked the first in the regional competition in 2017 and the second in 2018. Enditem
