Today, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger issued the following statement after joining Biden Administration officials and industry leaders for a virtual summit to discuss the global chip shortage and President Biden’s infrastructure plan.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to share with the President and his team our perspective on the urgent need to invest in semiconductor manufacturing capacity, R&D, education and jobs here in the United States. It is clear there is broad bipartisan and cross-industry recognition that semiconductor manufacturing is a vital component of our national infrastructure that must be included in the American Jobs Plan. We should seize this moment in time to solidify American strength and unity in this critical industry.”
