Maiwada added that the event featured exhibitions that showcased the latest products and solutions from Huawei and its partners.

“These served as a platform to unveil some of the company’s latest technological advancements”. Maiwada added.

Speaking of her experience, Assistant Controller General of Customs in charge of ICT/Modernisation, Kikelomo Adeola, and other top officials of the service, said they were very enthusiastic about their participation in the Huawei Connect 2023 Shanghai.

“We enjoyed learning about the latest ICT trends and technologies and looked forward to deploying some of Huawei’s latest products and solutions for use in the NCS Trade Modernization Project. These activities provided the NCS delegation with the opportunity to learn about the latest trends and technologies in the ICT industry, especially as the Service is on the verge of consolidating its modernization operations”. The delegation concluded.
