Turning Taiwan into an advanced semiconductor processing centre is a key government effort, she added.

“The focus of future development includes localisation of material supplies, technology autonomy, localisation of foreign equipment manufacturing, and localisation of advanced assembly equipment.”

The policies will be adopted one by one, to ensure “more abundant technical energy” for the industry and a complete industrial supply chain to enhance its key global role, she added.
