Taiwan President Says She Looks Forward to Producing Democracy Chips with U.S.

TAIPEI: President Tsai Ing-wen told the visiting U.S. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey on September 1st that Taiwan looks forward to working with the U.S. to produce democracy chips, the latest in a series of visits by senior officials from the states.

Despite the absence of formal diplomatic relations, Taiwan has been desired to show the U.S., its most important international supporter and arms supplier, that it is a reliable friend in a global chip crunch that is affecting auto production and consumer electronics.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. (TSMC), a major supplier to Apple company and the world’s largest contract chipmaker, is building a $12 billion plant in Arizona.

Tsai said at a meeting at the presidential palace in Taipei that Taiwan seeks to bolster its cooperation with the U.S. in the semiconductor and other high-tech industries in the face of authoritarian expansionism and the challenge of the CCP virus (Covid-19).

Tsai added that the cooperation with the U.S. will help build a more secure and resilient supply chain and looks forward to co-producing democratic chips to safeguard the interests of our democratic partners and create greater prosperity.

Doucet, a Republican, is the latest in a series of visits by officials from the U.S., including U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in early August, defied pressure from the Communist China for such visit to take place. He told Tsai that their partnership with Taiwan is the greatest in the semiconductor industry.
