Huawei has partnered with Angola’s Unitel and the Education Ministry to launch E-net phase two, a project aiming to transform the country into a knowledge-based economy.

The project, currently operating in various regions of country, is now targeting another 18 provinces and hopes to benefit more than 18,000 young people.
