Huawei has replaced thousands of product parts banned by the United States with locally sourced versions.
The founder disclosed this in a transcript of a recent speech released by a Shanghai university.
Huawei, a leading supplier of smartphones and other advanced equipment, has been targeted multiple times by Washington in recent years over cybersecurity concerns.
The administration of former president Donald Trump barred American from having any business relations with the firm, and his successor, Joe Biden trade sanctions on the company including a ban on sales of new Huawei equipment in the United States.
The moves forced the firm to find new ways to obtain semiconductors and other parts. The founder, Ren Zhengfei said Huawei has replaced more than 13,000 components with domestic versions in the past three years, according to the transcript posted by Shanghai Jiao Tong University on Friday.
“As of now, our circuit board (production) has stabilised, because we have a supply of domestically produced components,” he said.
