Updated 2017-12-13 10:04:19 Xinhua

Huawei Spain saw year-long growth in its three branches: infrastructures and networks, enterprise and private consumers, its CEO Tony Jin Yong said on Tuesday.

After 16 years in Spain, Huawei "has become the main provider of telecommunications infrastructures for (Spanish) national operators. We have become the key partner for the digital transformation of public and private companies and we have consolidated our position as the second smartphone manufacturer in the market since May 2015," said Jin.

Huawei's growth in Spain means the company now has 30 million users in Spain, along with 200 partners and 1,200 employees.

2017 has seen Huawei extend fiber-optic networks throughout Spain, especially in rural areas and is the country's main provider, the company said.

Meanwhile it is also working on the development of 5G networks, as well as collaborating with companies such as PSA Group to push the development of connected vehicles.

The company reported selling over 2 million smartphones in the current year on Spanish high-streets, as well as tablets and wearables, earning a 20.6 percent market share and prompting the opening of service centers in the cities of Madrid and Malaga.
