Huawei plans to increase its R & D budget by $5.8 billion in 2020, so that its overall R & D cost this year will exceed $20 billion, or about rmb142.1 billion.In an interview last year, Ren Zhengfei revealed that Huawei's growth in 2020 is estimated to be only about 10%, but "we don't worry too much about 2020". In 2020, Huawei will have a certain scale of development, and it is expected to return to the path of scale growth in 2021.
About 20% - 30% of Huawei's annual R & D expenditure is for research and innovation, and 70% for product development. In the next few years, the annual R & D expenditure will gradually increase to 10-20 billion US dollars.
Ren Zhengfei also said that Huawei has gradually built its capability center into a strategic resource gathering area in recent years. More than 20 capacity centers have been established in the world, and the number is increasing year by year. At present, a group of world-class outstanding scientists have been gathered to guide the development of the company in the whole process. At the same time, it will also strengthen dialogue and cooperation with scientists around the world, and actively participate in international industry, standards organizations, academic discussions, etc.
