​​Historic semiconductor legislation was enacted into law last August to strengthen US chip manufacturing. The $52 billion CHIPS and Science Act responds to an economic and national security “crisis” according to Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, by funding massive new semiconductor fabs across the country capable of producing the fastest chips.

Can America lead again in this crucial tech area? How far behind is China? Can Europe establish its own fabrication ecosystem? Who wins, who loses? With global chip revenue in 2030 projected to be $1 trillion, a major geostrategic competition is underway. Our speaker Peter Cleveland, a senior executive at industry powerhouse TSMC, will assess the global semiconductor landscape.
