BANGKOK, Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- With a focus on innovative contributions, "Thailand has been a frontier for our innovation," mainly due to the widespread use of the company's 5G networks in the southeast Asian country, said Chen Zhiping, vice president of ZTE.
ZTE's contributions in the kingdom extend to network coverage, bandwidth efficiency improvement, and personalized networks tailored for specific industries, she said in a recent interview with Xinhua.

Under the theme "Embrace the Digital Nexus," the two-day event brought together telecom regulators, industry organizations, carriers, think tanks, partners, and analysts. It served as a unique platform for the exchange of ideas and insights on 5G, future networks, and digital innovations.
With years of development, ZTE has evolved into a global player in the tech industry. "Our business has expanded globally, with a particular focus on Asia-Pacific," she said, underscoring the company's investments in digital infrastructure development.
Collaboration with local internet providers and telecommunication agencies plays a crucial role in ZTE's global strategy, Chen said. "This is essential for our global operations, addressing challenges in self-development amid uncertainties."
