深圳智造 Prototype in Shenzhen

纳尔现时在深圳清华的研究生,同时肩负建立中埃智能硬件交流平台的重任,他认为非洲设计、深圳智造的模式会有很大潜力,埃塞俄比亚将会是非洲市场的领头羊。

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 ”.

这种模式已有成功案例,深圳手机企业传音,2016及2017年连续成为中国手机出口量第一的企业。2017年,传音在全球销售了将近1.3亿部手机,其中73%销往非洲。传音成功主要原因是他们根据埃塞俄比亚的需求,量体裁衣地设计最适合非洲市场的手机,并以埃塞俄比亚作为基地,发展非洲这个最具潜力市场。

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.
