What does the CHIPS Act mean for U.S.-China semiconductor competition?

October 6 | Online

In August, Biden's administration finally passed a semiconductor subsidy bill, but will it help competition with China? Please join Cambridge professor Chris Marquis as he discusses with Rory Murphy, Vice President of Government Affairs at the USCBC and Paul Triolo, Senior VP for China and Technology Policy Lead at Albright Stonebridge Group. 

In August, Biden’s administration finally passed a semiconductor subsidy bill, but will it help competition with China?

The CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 achieved rare bipartisan support, and promises to funding of more than $200 billion over the next five years with the goal of re-establishing the U.S. as a global canter of semiconductor manufacturing.

China also has its own robust industrial policy to support semi-conductors, how do the programs compare?  Are the two countries aiming to develop similar or different capabilities?

Further, today’s leading global semi-conductor firms hail from Taiwan and South Korea. How do the U.S. and Chinese policies counter competition from these countries?

To find out, please join Cambridge professor Chris Marquis at noon EST on October 6 as he discusses them with Rory Murphy, Vice President of Government Affairs at the US-China Business Council and Paul Triolo, Senior VP for China and Technology Policy Lead for Albright Stonebridge Group.
