Building a More Resilient Semiconductor Supply Chain Through US-ROK Cooperation

Date & Time

Dec. 14, 2022
10:00am – 11:00am ET


South Korean companies produce around 70 percent of the world’s memory chips. But as countries look to bolster their own economic resilience, there is growing competition to boost domestic semiconductor research and manufacturing capabilities. At the same time, the United States and South Korea have a shared interest to promote and protect critical technologies to enhance the resilience of their respective supply chains.

Join us for this online discussion to assess the outlook for Korea’s semiconductor industry and how the Biden and the Yoon administrations could work together in high-tech industries for building resilient supply chains, strengthening their global competitiveness, and fostering more effective cooperation through the enhancement of public-private partnerships.
