Trump Pushing For New Chip Factories In The US


If a report by The Wall Street Journal is anything to go by, the Trump administration is in talks with major semiconductor companies to establish factories in the US.

While Intel is reportedly in discussions with the U.S. Defense Department about boosting domestic technology sources, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) is also mulling over building a U.S. factory. “We are actively evaluating all the suitable locations, including in the U.S., but there is no concrete plan yet,” TSMC spokesperson Nina Kao said in a statement.

TSMC is also in talks with Apple, one of its biggest customers, about setting up a plant in the U.S., added the report by The Wall Street Journal.

According to the report, the move highlights the growing concern about reliance on Asian factories as a source of critical technology thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
