It has been operated in compliance with laws and regulations since establishment. The company maintains active communication with suppliers, customers and related authorities to comprehensive assess the impact of US export control on its production and operations. At present, the company is in normal operation. The export control will have a certain impact on the company in the short term, but the impact is controllable. The company will continue to follow up on this matter and continue to evaluate the impact.
