Strengthening US semiconductor supply chain resilience

Friday, September 22, 2023, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. EDT

In the face of rising rivalry with China, the United States has prioritized strengthening semiconductor supply chain resilience. This has been pursued through government incentives to promote greater domestic semiconductor production; deepening engagement with global semiconductor powerhouses like Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea; and greater use of national security tools to control the export of leading-edge semiconductors and related technologies to China. These ambitious undertakings raise the following questions: What is the end goal of U.S. policies? Will the current approach enable the United States to achieve its goals? What impact will these undertakings have on the United States’ relationships with its close partners who are central to semiconductor supply chains?

On September 22, the Center for East Asia Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution will host a public event to examine these and other related questions. Brookings Senior Fellow Ryan Hass will moderate an interactive panel discussion with Melanie Sisson, Andrew Yeo, Chris Meserole, and Jason Hsu, who will offer their perspectives from a variety of angles on U.S. semiconductor resilience.

Online viewers can submit questions via email to or on Twitter using #USSemiconductorResilience.
