Tokyo Woos Taiwanese Giant In Joint R&D Deal 

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) is looking to build a US$7 billion semiconductor plant in the western part of Japan’s Kumamoto Prefecture in collaboration with Sony Group and other partners.  

This simply means that Japan’s attempt to woo this Taiwanese semiconductor had recently paid off through the culmination of this billion-dollar plant.  

According to Nikkei Asia, this partnership took a large step forward in 2019 when the university of Tokyo formed an alliance with TSMC. 

Both had built a cooperative framework in developing an innovative semiconductor that would be used for AIs.

TSMC had offered its prototyping service while the higher education institution had offered its designing expertise.  

“We are pleased that we decided to pursue international cooperation at an unprecedented richness and depth,” Makoto Gonokami, then the president of the University of Tokyo was quoted by the publication as saying.
