Opinion: China Should Slash Reliance on Foreign Chips

* China should accelerate development of its own chip-production supply chain

* Case could interfere with country's goal of developing 5G mobile network

 

The seven-year ban on purchasing American-made components imposed by the U.S. on Chinese telecom equipment-maker ZTE Corp. is sounding an alarm over China’s dependence on third-party chips.

China should accelerate the speed at which it is developing its own chip-production supply chain instead of just talking the talk because this sector is of great importance to the national interest and people’s livelihoods.
