Huawei is once again in the news but this time for the right reasons. The Chinese Telecom giant has been rated as one of the top hundred most valuable brands globally by BrandZ.  WPP’s research arm Kantar published its annual report of world’s 100 Most Valuable Brands recently.

Kantar ranks Huawei one step up the ladder (from last year) to 47th position with an eight percent increase in brand value. Huawei has consecutively featured for 4 years in the top 50. It has come at the time when Huawei has been facing the heat from the US over after failure of trade talks between the Trump administration and their Chinese counterpart.

Other Chinese brands share a similar growth trajectory succeeding in the global consumer economy. Four of the nine new entries to the BrandZ’s report are based in China and there are 15 Chinese companies now in the top 100.

Trailing forward, Huawei could turn the tide with its commitment to developing technologies that benefit society, as well as consumers like ‘AI for Good’ initiative.
