More than manufacturing: Investments in chip production must support U.S. priorities

Key Points

  • The federal government is poised to invest $52 billion by 2026 to support U.S. chipmaking

  • Investing in U.S. chipmaking and semiconductor research will help create a world-leading ecosystem. It's more than just manufacturing capacity

  • Policies should support the growth of U.S. know-how, intellectual property, and innovation



There is broad, bipartisan agreement on the urgent need for action to address national security and economic vulnerabilities. Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger proposes three principles to guide the critical decisions on what actions to take: promote innovation and IP in the U.S.; connect U.S. semiconductor IP development and manufacturing; consider companies’ actions and commitment.
