The government said it has delivered its intention to participate in the US-led semiconductor alliance Chip4.
On the 8th, President Yoon Seok-yeol met with reporters on his way to the Yongsan presidential office in Seoul after the summer vacation and said, We will review the national interests thoroughly whether to join the chip 4 alliance. President Yoon asked, Is there anything I asked for Foreign Minister Park Jin-jin, who visits China in a situation where he would participate in the chip 4 alliance. Don’t worry.
The United States has proposed to strengthen the semiconductor supply chain by establishing a chip four-year-alliance in Korea, Japan and Taiwan. Japan and Taiwan have been accepted, and Korea is also considering. China reacted sensitively to the US-led Chip 4 alliance.
Park said at a plenary session on the National Assembly’s Foreign Affairs and Unification Committee on the 1st, saying, We are comprehensively seeing whether we will participate in the chip 4 alliance in order to increase national interests.
An official from the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy explained in a call with GDINET Korea that I know that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is in consultation with the United States to participate in the Chip 4 Alliance Preliminary Conference. However, the time or place of the preliminary meeting has not been decided yet, he said.
The preliminary meeting, which is expected to be held at the end of this month or early next month, is expected to coordinate the chip four alliance agenda and participation levels.
The US administration informed Korea last month that it will hold a semiconductor supply chain working meeting for the Chip 4 Alliance this month. He asked for this month to see if Korea will attend.
