The US's desire to limit China's technological development is not news, but now well-informed sources report an initiative by the island's authorities to force the EU to impose restrictions, and next month there will be another meeting between the US and Taiwan political leaders to discuss the strengthening of cooperation in the supply of semiconductor products.
According to Reuters, with reference to Taiwan ' s diplomatic community, a meeting of American and Taiwanese officials is necessary to identify concrete mechanisms for the two countries ' interaction in the context of the recently approved United States President ' s package of laws that would subsidize the national semiconductor industry, and it is known that TSMC initially sought financial support from the US authorities when it negotiated the construction of a state-of-the-art semi-conductor production facility in Arizona, which will begin to operate in 2024 and distribute 5 nm chips to local customers.
The plans of GlobalWafers to build a facility in the United States that will be able to produce the silicon plates necessary for the manufacture of semiconductor components were also confirmed recently, and the U.S. authorities intend to create the conditions for attracting Taiwanese suppliers to the country to create a full-scale ecosystem for the localization of chip production throughout the country, which will be the subject of a meeting to be held in the middle of the following month.
It is also reported that the U.S. intends to expand the range of sanctions against the PRC, which are intended to warn the political leadership of the Underwear from taking over Taiwan's rebel island, and that the Zaokean opponents want to strengthen measures that hinder China's technological development and restrict investment in the country's economy, while the idea is to coordinate with European partners, but not to provoke the PRC.
Taiwanese diplomats intend to ensure that European parliamentarians act in concert with their American counterparts. At least the Taiwanese side wants to understand what action the like-minded in the European Union can take if China does decide to take over the neighbouring island. It is the intention of Taiwan lobbyists that European officials should notify China in the form of a warning. But reaching a common position among European countries on sanctions against China can be very problematic. Many European countries are heavily dependent on the Chinese economy, including the locomotive of the regional bloc, Germany.
