Promoting Semiconductor “Friend-Shoring”: The Role of Indo-Pacific Allies and Partners in Supply Chain Resilience

This project is a collaborative effort between CSIS’s Asia Program, Wadhwani Center for AI and Advanced Technologies, and Scholl Chair in International Business. It is a two-part project mapping semiconductor supply chains and opportunities for cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region. The first paper, "Securing Semiconductor Supply Chains in the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework for Prosperity," focuses on the geopolitics of the chip industry, identifying the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework for Prosperity (IPEF) as the most viable vehicle for executing the administration's friend-shoring agenda in the sector. The second paper, "Mapping the Semiconductor Supply Chain: The Critical Role of the Indo-Pacific Region," offers data-driven insights about regional semiconductor ecosystems and the role that regional players occupy throughout the value chain. Together, these papers map opportunities for deeper regional integration to secure semiconductor supply chains. Both pieces can be read below. 

This project was funded by the generous support of Samsung.
