Taiwan Accuses the China of Stealing Chipmaking Technology

Taiwan’s top representative for the United States, Alexander Yui, accused China of intellectual property theft of Taiwanese technologies in an effort to match the island’s semiconductor manufacturing capacity.

Yui dismissed claims that China’s microprocessor industry could match or rival Taiwan’s and doubted the country’s ability to produce innovative products to compete on the global market. He also said that China’s microprocessor companies also circumvent innovation practices and use “dishonest methods” to increase their capabilities.

Chinese Embassy in the United States spokesperson, Liu Pengyu, said wrongdoing, claiming the Yui’s statement “lacks common sense” and that the country’s achievements are not through “cheating” or “stealing.” Liu then said that all products domestically made in China are “by their own strength.”
