The Project 2049 Institute and the US-Taiwan Business Council have now completed our joint project to examine vulnerabilities in the semiconductor supply chain and potential implications of supply chain disruptions, with a particular focus on Taiwan as a crucial partner for the U.S. in the semiconductor sector. The initial report was published on June 8, 2022, and the final version of the report will be published on June 21, 2023.

We have worked with Principal Investigator Dr. John Fowler of Arizona State University, and with others in the community, on the project report, and are co-hosting a seminar in conjunction with the report release. We look forward to welcoming an excellent panel of experts to discuss the report’s conclusions, along with a discussion on the future of the semiconductor supply chain and ways for the U.S. and Taiwan to address vulnerabilities.

Please check back on the report page after 2:30pm on June 21, 2023 to download a copy of the final report.

This report release event will take place in person only. Register to attend by clicking the “Register” button on the left and fill out the form at the bottom of this page. We look forward to seeing you there!
