Arizona governor becomes latest US official to visit Taiwan amid China threat
The governor of the US state of Arizona has begun a trip to Taiwan focused on securing critical chips that are at the centre of the heated tech rivalry between the United States and China
The governor’s packed itinerary includes meetings with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen and other officials as well as discussions with the leaders of high-tech manufacturing companies. The governor also will deliver a keynote address to a gathering of American and Taiwanese business leaders.
During his visit to Taiwan, Ducey is seeking to attract suppliers for a new $12bn semiconductor plant being built in Arizona by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp (TSMC), the world’s largest supplier of the critical chips used in practically all electronic devices.
“The goal of this trade mission is to take these relationships to the next level — to strengthen them, expand them and ensure they remain mutually beneficial.”said by Gov. Ducey.Taiwan produces more than half the global supply of high-end processor chips, and Washington is concerned that the US is overly dependent on the island and other Asian suppliers.
