Taiwan tech firms fear fallout after US raises supply chain alarm

-

Tech suppliers in Taiwan, Japan and South Korea have been bracketed alongside China as “dangerous risks” to U.S. national security — underlining how Washington’s desire to strengthen its supply chains could rebound on business in Asia.

In a 250-page report released on June 8, U.S. officials produced a comprehensive picture of the country’s supply chain vulnerabilities in four key areas: semiconductors, battery technology, pharmaceuticals and minerals.

Much of the report is aimed at China, which is competing against the U.S. for dominance in next-generation technology. But the findings also reveal Washington’s alarm at its reliance on suppliers in places like Taiwan — which, although friendly in political and economic terms, is considered to be vulnerable because of its hostile relationship with Beijing.
