Recently, Japan suddenly launched a limited number of policies to export important materials to the semiconductor and mobile industries to Korea. To ensure there is no shortage of materials for future products, Samsung has come up with some positive measures.
According to South Korean media, Samsung has asked partners to supply components for home appliances and smartphones to store materials originating from Japan. In the letter to partners, Samsung requires them to store enough materials for at least 90 days. The reserve process must be completed before August 15 and Samsung will bear all the costs incurred at the present time as well as in the future.
Analysts say this is part of an effort to reduce the negative impact of Samsung's Japan-Korea trade war. Even, Samsung is considering that Japan's policy of restricting export of semiconductor materials could be further expanded.
