During a call with her counterpart in Taiwan, US Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo addressed chip supply chains, and the two would collaborate on technology, trade, and investment through a newly developed mechanism, according to her office.
The US has encouraged Taiwan, as a key chip supplier, to do more to help fix a global semiconductor shortage that has forced the closure of some auto production lines and harmed consumer goods. Taiwan claims to be doing everything possible to assist.
Raimondo, in a Monday call with Taiwan Economy Minister Wang Mei-Hua, “underscored the United States’ support for Taiwan and the importance of the U.S.-Taiwan commercial and investment relationship,” the U.S. Commerce Department said.
She also highlighted the United States’ sustained interest in cooperating with Taiwan on matters of mutual commercial concern, particularly in the field of semiconductor supply chains and related eco-systems.
