China’s industrial policy for semiconductors: lessons for the world



About the event 

China’s 8-year-long effort to achieve self-sufficiency in chip production has not yet been successful despite huge financial support.  This can be explained by China’s low starting point in the highest-value parts of the chip supply chain, as well as US sanctions and export bans on semiconductors.  The United States, as well as the European Union,  are stepping up efforts to upgrade their semiconductor industry but reviving industrial policy.   This webinar explores the lessons that should be drawn from China's experience for the rest of the world. 

It will be moderated by Prof Donald Low (HKUST).
