President Tsai Ing-wen says looks forward to producing ‘democracy chips’ with U.S

On September 1st, Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen told the US Arizona state governor Doug Ducey that Taiwan looks forward to producing “democracy chips” with the United States, as part of the latest cooperation between the two countries.

Despite the lack of formal diplomatic ties, Taiwan has been a long time international ally to the US in arms supplying, semiconductors, and many other industries.

One of Apple’s major suppliers and chipmaker, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) is setting up manufacturing plants in Arizona.

President Tsai said at the meeting in Taipei presidential office, “In the face of authoritarian expansionism and the challenges of the post-pandemic era, Taiwan seeks to bolster cooperation with the United States in the semiconductor and other high-tech industries.”
Ducey, a Republican governor, is the latest in a string of senior officials from the US to visit Taiwan. He told Tsai the partnership between US and Taiwan in the semiconductor industry was “the greatest.” Ducey said, “TSMC’s legacy investment has elevated the potential for what’s possible between Arizona and Taiwan.”
