The U.S. government discourages Intel’s plan to use Chinese factories to increase chip production

According to reports, Intel’s efforts to increase production in China have been suppressed in the United States, and severe chip shortages will continue for some time. The company once proposed to use a factory in Chengdu to increase the production of silicon wafers, which may be built before the end of 2022.

While considering expansion in China, Intel has been seeking federal assistance from the United States to increase production and research in China. Bloomberg According to anonymous sources involved in the review, the Biden government strongly recommends not to use the Chengdu plant. This may be due to the current promotion of more manufacturing in the United States, technology and China’s security issues.
