Semiconductor Industry Released Statement on the U.S. Outbound Statement
By Shubham Munde, 20 September, 2023
The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) in the United States has released a statement to set up new rules and actions for the outbound investment screening in August 2023. The US has targeted China, with developments coming further on releasing this statement.
The US administration launched an executive order in August 2023, citing prohibitions and specific product and technology rules. It prohibited outbound investments in semiconductors, microelectronics, artificial intelligence fields, and others. China is identified as the country of concern in these recently released reports from the US administration, followed by Hongkong and Macao as the other two countries on the list. Thus, the order also included notification focusing on a broader set of transactions for China. Analysts also expect that the administration will further increase the scope of controls on outbound investment, as visualized in the executive order signed recently in the US in 2023. The sales of semiconductors globally is recorded to be increased by 4.7% as compared to the first quarter, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) reports.
Thus, the semiconductor industry said in response to this newly released outbound investment that the sector will contribute towards protecting the united states' competitive semiconductor industry as a part of safeguarding national security in 2023. The organization also added that it welcomes the new proposal with opportunities to give back feedback based on specific changes the industry may undergo. The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) hopes that new rules will allow the United States based chip firms to approach key global markets better. It looks forward to competing on an equal platform with other countries, including China. The organization also thinks of maintaining the strength of the US semiconductor industry long term and developing caliber to shine more among other global competitors in 2023.
