Huawei Malaysia has named Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K) as its public relations agency, to lead the local communications strategy and execution for its Consumer Business Group (CBG) in Malaysia. Hill+Knowlton Strategies will be responsible for all strategic communications counsel, planning and media relations, complementing Huawei Malaysia’s overall marketing and branding strategy.

"Malaysia will continue to be a strong market for Huawei as the country continues to make strides in connectivity and ICT proliferation; progress noted in the Huawei Global Connectivity Index 2017 with Malaysia claiming the position of top-mover by rising five positions in the ranks," said the release.

Michelle Tham, managing director for Hill+Knowlton Strategies Singapore and Malaysia said, “We are honoured to be selected as strategic partners on this journey. It is a privilege to be given the opportunity to work with Huawei, one of the leading technology brands globally.
