Supply Chains/ Onshoring
One key example of a supply chain that needs to be secured is in the semiconductor industry. The top factories that manufacture semiconductor chips are based in Asia, and US government officials have been pushing to increase manufacturing on American soil for industries like defense, as well as to hedge against possible geopolitical events that could cut off US chip supplies.
State and Commerce Department efforts to secure the semiconductor supply chain have resulted in the largest onshoring in US History and the catalyst for $350B investment in US Chip Industry and the $250B bipartisan CHIPS and Science Act for research funding in top national security technologies. These efforts can serve as a model for US investment and onshoring in other vital tech sectors.
