Eric Xu, Huawei Rotating CEO, remarked, "In 2016, Huawei maintained its strategic focus and achieved solid growth. As humanity continues to explore and make new breakthroughs in the digital world, digitization and increasing intelligence present huge business opportunities for all industries, and are also paving the road for new growth for the ICT industry. We will stay customer-centric and will support digital transformation in all industries, in order to create value for our customers and to grow sustainably."

In 2016, Huawei's Carrier BG generated CNY290.6 billion (US$41.8 billion) in revenue, an increase of 24% year-on-year.
