"We've been sourcing about 70 to 80 percent of semiconductors for our home appliances from Japanese companies but we are fast diversifying the suppliers," why not buy some chips from rival Samsung locally? I understand they cant buy all the components for competitive reasons. But for the low end components, they could source from Samsung. Hey See Apple & Samsung . They are big Rivals in marketplace, yet Apple is Samsung's biggest customer. Worth 7.8B in 2011 alone!.
