MediaTek maintains the principle of local procurement as its purchasing policy in the hopes that job opportunities will remain with local residents, while at the same time reducing the carbon emission during material transportation. 

However, when facing the intensified global market competition, we will conduct risk assessments on the overall conditions of supply and demand and purchase from suppliers of different regions in an appropriate ratio in order to mitigate material supply risks.

Moreover, we have also established strategic cooperative relationships with our suppliers to review products and service conditions periodically and to ensure the stability of raw material supply and quality. In the future, MediaTek will continue to strengthen the cooperation relationships with already existing wafer foundries and will also actively contact other domestic and overseas wafer foundries to provide greater security and selection of material sources, quality, and price.
