With the agriculture sector being responsible for almost 30% of greenhouse gas emissions, Huawei's deputy CEO in South Africa, Kian Chen believes that an efficient and sustainable agricultural sector would not only benefit the South African economy, but also aid in job creation. 

In an attempt to demonstrate the practicality of a sustainable future, Huawei along with Austria's largest drone provider, Dronetech presented an update on a pioneering project that aimed to demonstrate how a shared-use approach of both 5G and IoT technologies could help in the advancement of agricultural sustainability. This especially proves useful for countries like South Africa where affordability issues would act as a barrier, preventing farmers who would typically benefit from these revolutionary technologies from adopting them.
