John VerWey is a Non-Resident Research Fellow at CSET.

The U.S. semiconductor supply chain’s resilience will meaningfully increase only if current efforts to re-shore fabrication (that is, to situate more facilities that make its key parts in the United States) are met with commensurate efforts to re-shore upstream material production along with downstream assembly, test, and packaging (ATP) of finished microelectronics.

China is moving closer to its aim of being a world leader in artificial intelligence by 2030, according to a CSET report due to semiconductors made by American companies.

A CSET report finds that 30,000 high-tech workers would be needed to staff the construction of new semiconductor manufacturing plants.

A CEST report found that the Chinese military is reliant on American technologies and advanced chip production capacity in Taiwan and South Korea for procuring its AI chips.

Research Fellow Emily Weinstein answers whether China's "Made in China 2025” to increase semiconductor production is actually working.

In Part II of her OODA Loop interview, Senior Advisor Melissa Flagg discussed operational capabilities required to provide true foundational leadership in the semiconductor industry of the future, the talent pipeline challenge, and scenario planning after the passage of the CHIPS and Science Act.

CSET's Senior Advisor Melissa Flagg discussed the policy, procurement, and contract management implications of the CHIPS and Science Act after its passage into law.

NPR spoke with Research Analyst Will Hunt about the semiconductor industry and how the new CHIPS Act could ease supply constraints.

Funding from the CHIPS and Science Act is expected to build new semiconductor manufacturing plants, but to staff new fabs, Research Analyst Will Hunt estimates a need for more than 3,000 high-tech workers.
