納爾現時在深圳清華的研究生,同時肩負建立中埃智能硬件交流平臺的重任,他認為非洲設計、深圳智造的模式會有很大潛力,埃塞俄比亞將會是非洲市場的領頭羊。

Nael now is the master student in Tsinghua University and the driver of China-Ethiopia smart hardware platform. He has great confidence on the success on “Designed in Ethiopia Prototype in Shenzhen ”.

這種模式已有成功案例,深圳手機企業傳音,2016及2017年連續成為中國手機出口量第壹的企業。2017年,傳音在全球銷售了將近1.3億部手機,其中73%銷往非洲。傳音成功主要原因是他們根據埃塞俄比亞的需求,量體裁衣地設計最適合非洲市場的手機,並以埃塞俄比亞作為基地,發展非洲這個最具潛力市場。

TECNO is a successful showcase. The Shenzhen mobile company won the No. 1 of China mobile export in 2016 and 2017. They sold around 130 million mobile phone to the world while 73% to Africa. The success was because of the tailor made mobile design for the African market, started with Ethiopia.
