CHAIR: TSMC HAS NO PLANS TO INVEST IN US OR LEAVE TAIWAN|張忠謀:鴻海投資案沒創新 台積電不會離台

A few days ago, Foxconn was finally given the green light for its US$10 billion investment project in the U.S. On Jul.28, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation Chair Morris Chang remarked on Foxconn's investment project during a speech on growth and innovation. He said that he sees no innovation in Foxconn's project, and that TSMC has no current plans to invest in the U.S. and leave Taiwan. On Jul.26, U.S.President DonaldTrump, alongside the Taiwan electronics manufacturer Foxconn's CEO Terry Gou, announced that the company will invest US$10 billion, which is around NT$300 billion, in Wisconsin to build a LCD panel plant. On Jul. 27, Gou visited Wisconsin and signed a memorandum of understanding with Wisconsin governor Scott Walker. ==SCOTT WALKER Wisconsin Governor== US$ 10 billion of investment. This is about something that someday, it may be 10 or 15 or 20 years from now. In the future, Wisconsin will be providing US$3 billion in economic incentives to Foxconn. When interviewed by the media, Gou emphasized that politics should serve for economy, and that actions speak louder than words when it comes to economic growth. He also said that a businessman belongs nowhere, because the market is his home. ==TERRY GOU, Foxconn CEO== This is the core of America - it's the strength, it's the heart. This is Wisconsin. On Jul. 28, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation CEO Morris Chang made a remark about Foxconn's investment project during a speech on growth and innovation. TSMC was once said to have planned to invest NT$ 500 billion in the U.S. ==MORRIS CHANG TSMC Chair== Foxconn invested US$ 10 billion in the U.S., and I believe that it will achieve the growth it wants. However, I see no innovation in the investment. Premier Lin Chuan once said that we should not blindly pursue an excessively high growth rate. We can only meet growth targets if we can see things clearly first. Chang's speech attracted a lot of Taiwanese entrepreneurs. Former vice president Wu Den-yih, who attended the speech as a presenter, expressed his worries over Foxconn's investment project. He is afraid that Foxconn will cause a domino effect and prompt more domestic companies to leave Taiwan. Chang said that currently, he has no plans to invest in the U.S., and that TSMC will not leave Taiwan.
