Shenzhen-based telecommunications equipment maker Huawei plans to create 5,500 jobs in Europe within five years as the company expands its services in the region, China Daily said Saturday.

Huawei, the world's second largest maker of telecom equipment, is to offer information technology solutions to European businesses, Patrick Zhang, president of marketing and solutions at Huawei Enterprise Business Group, told the newspaper.

The business is expected to generate turnover of US$1 billion in the next three to five years, he added.

The company is launching its expansion despite the European Commission's allegations of "anti-competitive behavior" by Huawei and its cross-town rival ZTE.

Zhang said Europe offered more growth potential than the United States, where a congressional report last year said the company "posed a security threat" and essentially blocked it from the market.

"Our expansion progress in Europe is different from that in the United States, where we have encountered access difficulties due to some groundless reasons given by the American side," Zhang said.

Huawei representatives said last week that the company expected to have its revenues expand by 10 percent annually over the next five years, thanks largely to consumer devices and enterprise services.

Huawei reported revenues of US$35 billion in 2012.
