Morris Chang that China needs time to catch up with the semiconductor industry


plans in an interview retired in 2018, TSMC chairman Morris Chang about China’s semiconductor industry. China has invested a lot of money in the past few years to the semiconductor industry, such as in 2014, the establishment of the national IC industry reached $20 billion investment fund. Chang thought these investments don’t see results in the short term, he thinks the “learning curve” relationship, the United States, South Korea, and Taiwan, Japan’s “learning curve” is down. To catch up with China were not so easy. “Learning curve” means that you have already accumulated a lot of experience, which give you the opportunity to bring innovation and lower costs, take advantage of this opportunity, in terms of technology and cost-cutting, and stay ahead of your competitors. Samsung, TSMC and Intel is really seized the opportunity.
