Throughout 2021, Government Affairs engaged on proposed changes to corporate and international tax policy to ensure a level playing field for Applied in all the jurisdictions where we operate. We also dedicated considerable effort to proposed U.S. economic incentives to strengthen the U.S. semiconductor innovation ecosystem. Other policy areas of focus included the ongoing pandemic response, international trade, technology regulation, Research and Development (R&D), human resources and labor, and sustainability.
