While working on the strategy of expanding production to China to overcome the global chip crisis, a warning came from the White House. Intel is asked to turn to different solutions.
China, which has been a manufacturing base for tech giants for years with its cost-oriented production strategy, is in danger of losing this advantage. The reason is, as you can imagine, the U.S. embargoes.
In fact, the U.S. government’s view of China goes back to the embargoes on the agenda. We often heard the call of heads of state for the United States to become a manufacturing base. The embargo became flesh and blood.
The global chip crisis has left countless industries in a difficult situation, and both countries and casting companies are looking for a solution. However, this quest has to continue without China, because the US is absolutely uncompromising.
Sources say there was a strong warning of Intel’s plans to establish a foundry facility in China or to shift some of the production to China through partnership. This move, which could relieve Intel’s hand by the end of the year, was not accepted by the White House. The reason, of course, is national security.
It seems that the elimination of China will cause the global chip crisis to continue in the same way, but the USA is determined to pay the price. Intel also states that it is seeking solutions with new facilities in the USA or Europe.
