The Joe Biden administration of the America is going to adopt a strategy to prioritize the development of semi-conductors, artificial intelligence and next-generation technology to counter China in a rivalry. America’s emphasis will be on the production of a large number of microchips. These chips are also used in cars, mobile phones and refrigerators.
There has been a sudden decrease in their world. At present, China is the main source of their supply. The Biden administration’s strategy is to move the United States of America’s allies together in the field of semi-conductor fabrication and quantum computing, so that these countries can overtake traditional technology.
The newspaper South China Morning Post has published a special report on the latest American preparations. The report is based on conversations with former US government officials and some outside experts. According to him, the Biden administration wants to take the United States and its allies forward in new technology areas, so that these techniques will continue to dominate the West in the new economy.
Lindsay Gorman, a researcher of emerging technology at the American institution ‘German Marshall Fund’, said – a new understanding has been made about the importance of semiconductors. Semiconductors are playing an important role in geopolitical conflicts today. In today’s era, every technology is powered by some chip.
Experts say that one of the objectives of this strategy is that China should not allow access to certain types of technologies as far as possible. The Chinese government has put its strength behind developing these technologies. Also, Chinese companies like Huawei are moving in this direction. It is said that President Xi Jinping will present a special plan for the development of new technologies at the session of the Chinese Parliament-National People’s Congress starting on March 5.
Coordinator Kurt Campbell of the US National Security Council has emphasized the need to adopt a strategy that involves the US allied countries such as Japan, South Korea and Taiwan in chip fabrication and making America the center of this task. . Western strategists allege that there has been a shortage of microchips in the world because China is hoarding them.
The Corona epidemic also affected it. This shortage led some automakers to close their plants in the US. This exposed the weakness of the American supply chain. This showed that in this case, the US and Western countries are dependent on Asian producers. The Biden administration now wants to address this deficiency.
Last week, President Joe Biden ordered a review of the state of the global supply chain in the case of microchips. He has also called for a review of the state of the global supply chain of materials such as large-sized batteries, medicines, important minerals and rare earths. Officials have said that it is too early to say anything about what the new US strategy will be. But the American magazine Foreign Affairs has said that now techno-autocracy (the technique of dictatorial governance) is going to face the challenge of techno-democracy.
Two weeks ago, the US State Department spokesman, Nord Price, said – “We have to fight against China’s abuse, its exploitative behavior and its export tools through which it is advancing the techno dictatorship.” Now this is clear It is said that the Biden administration has prepared to fight against it.
