Session 2: Geopolitical
Semiconductors and the Strategic Value for American Security and Prosperity
Congressman Michael T. McCaul
U.S. Representative, 10th Congressional District of Texas
United States Congress
Semiconductors are a foundational technology. They drive U.S. innovation, power the systems that protect us, and are a critical technology. But our adversaries are using the same chips to develop weapons and surveillance tools that are being used to commit genocide in Xinjiang. We cannot allow the industrial policies of adversarial countries to erode U.S. manufacturing capacity.
