Taiwan’s Economic Department stated that “if the review of the relevant application does not involve the development of military weapons such as nuclear, biological, chemical, etc., the issuing authority of the Bureau of Trade, etc., will issue the certificate within 3 to 5 working days. If there is any doubt, it will consult relevant Unit review, to issue certification within 10 to 15 working days."
On the morning of the 28th, MediaTek issued a micro-blog response, saying that it stated that it was actively preparing related documents to apply for ZTE's export licenses under the requirements of the "Taiwan Ministry of Economic Affairs and Trade Bureau."
In the same day morning, Gu Dawei, the chief financial officer and cum spokesman for MediaTek, said in an exclusive interview with Fenghuangwang.com that this was not the case for Taiwan’s economic sector that specifically targeted ZTE. He explained that the decision he made was based on international trade laws and prevented local companies from violating regulations because they did not pay attention to these bans. "Not for a certain country or region or a specific company." Gu Dawei said at the time.
It is understood that the products of MediaTek's exports to ZTE are mainly concentrated on related products such as chips and Wi-Fi modules. After obtaining this license, it means that MediaTek and ZTE's business can communicate normally.
