People in mainland China are concerned about the environment and are taking great measures to protect it, and PlantSnap will now be able to help their effort," said Eric Ralls, Founder and CEO of PlantSnap, Inc. "We wouldn’t have had access to that market without Huawei’s help."

Technology Support from Huawei
