[Reporter Fang Weijie/Taipei Report] Jade Mountain Science and Technology Association and Qinye Zhongxin held a science and technology forum today to discuss "Dawn of Silicon Island under Geopolitics—New Competition of Technology Industry", Chairman of Yushan Science and Technology Association and Chairman of Pegatron (4938) Tong Zixian joked that the theme could be changed to "The Beauty and Sorrow of Taiwan's Semiconductor Industry", "We are so beautiful, everyone should look at us, touch us, but don't push us."
Tong Zixian said that there is no doubt that Taiwan's semiconductors have become an important economic pillar. The competitiveness in this area has been shining and hot in the past few years. In addition to letting the world see Taiwan, it also pays more attention to Taiwan's status, and is even willing to protect Taiwan, Taiwan It is in a key geographical and semiconductor strategic position, so there are many suitors, and who is better will bring Taiwan a lot of trouble.

Tong Zixian said that China’s economy has grown rapidly in the past 20 years, but it has not been able to be self-sufficient in terms of oil and semiconductor demand. According to the data released by China in 2021, the import trade volume of oil in that year reached 280 billion U.S. dollars, and semiconductor-related The import trade volume spent on investment reached 432 billion US dollars. A Chinese official and Tong Zixian once half-jokingly said: "Taiwan does not mind China's efforts to develop semiconductors. In Taiwan's words, it is to engage in a little import substitution."
Tong Zixian believes that China has spent too much foreign exchange in the semiconductor field in the past, so it decided to sprint hard. As early as 2007 and 2008, Taiwan began to gradually show technological trends that surpassed South Korea and the United States, and then it was able to survive the COVID-19 epidemic. It has been thriving in the world before and after, but now the European Union has spent 218 billion euros on the development of semiconductors, and the United States has also introduced the chip bill. Whether Taiwan's semiconductor advantages can be maintained or overtaken in the future depends on the development of the new game that the technology industry will enter next. .
