The White House recently issued a fact sheet commemorating the one-year anniversary of the CHIPS and Science Act’s signing into law. The act provides almost $53 billion for the advancement of semiconductor manufacturing, research and development, and the workforce. It also establishes a 25% tax credit for capital investments in semiconductor manufacturing, promoting American innovation and technological progress.
The CHIPS and Science Act aims to enhance American competitiveness, increase the resilience of American supply chains, and support national security and access to vital technologies.
To explore partnership opportunities in the global semiconductor supply chain, the State Department has already partnered with Costa Rica, Panama, and the OECD.
