US Dependence on Taiwan Chips Is ‘Untenable,’ Raimondo Says

The US can’t keep relying on Taiwan for semiconductors and needs to pass legislation to support the domestic production of high-end computer chips, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said.

“Our dependence on Taiwan for chips is untenable and unsafe,” Raimondo told a crowd at the annual Aspen Security Forum in Colorado, a gathering of White House officials, diplomats and executives. She appeared via video conference from Washington, DC.
