Huawei to set up data center in Malaysia

Huawei Technologies and Malaysian state investor Khazanah Nasional will set up a data hosting and logistics center in southern Malaysia to serve the Chinese firm’s regional customers.

Huawei says the center will be located in the Iskandar region, a short distance from Singapore, and cover a combined office and warehouse space of 90,000 square feet, Reuters reported.


The companies did not disclose a value for the project, but said the centre will create 600 new jobs. The agreement was signed as Chinese President Xi Jinping made his first official visit to Malaysia this week.
