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.
