Beijing, March 7 (CNA) Chips made by Xiaomi are supported by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC), Xiaomi Inc. founder and chairman Lei Jun (雷軍) said Monday, thanking TSMC and expressing hope for further cooperation with Taiwanese businesses in the future.

Responding to reporters' questions on the sidelines of China's National People's Congress in Beijing, Lei said that the chips made by TSMC and other Taiwanese companies enjoy an absolutely advantageous global position.

The purpose of Xiaomi developing and manufacturing chips is not to lower the company's purchasing costs, but for the sake of helping make good smartphones, Lei said.
