The hybrid work model is a long-term change that will continue to drive strong demand not only for smart devices and data center infrastructure, but also for scenario-driven solutions such as smart collaboration, smart home, and smart office.

It has already made strong progress toward doubling R&D investments within three years from fiscal year 2021/2022, up 43% year on year to US$2 billion. And will continue to realize its ESG goals and commitments. The company is confident that by leveraging its clear strategy, competing with its unique competitive advantage of global-local model, and the right balance between innovation and efficiency, it can overcome any challenges to capture opportunities.
