Huawei Technologies Co., China's largest telecommunications equipment maker, unveiled its first Eastern European training center in Budapest to help benefit from an agreement with Hungary's Synergon Rt, the companies said. The $1.5 million center, which is the first in Europe to be operated by a partner of the Chinese company, will offer courses to engineers, service providers and information technology security experts, Synergon's CEO Lóránt Szaray said at a press briefing in Budapest today. Huawei, based in China's southern city of Shenzhen, signed an agreement with Synergon in April to grant a license to the Hungarian company to use Huawei products in the networks it installs in Hungary, Croatia, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. This training center means we want a long-term cooperation with Synergon, Wan Zhi, the managing director of Huawei's local unit, told reporters. We consider Synergon as one of our most important partners in the region.
