WASHINGTON—May 31, 2019—The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), representing U.S. leadership in semiconductor manufacturing, design, and research, today released the following statement from President & CEO John Neuffer in response to mounting U.S.-China trade and technology tensions.

“Each volley in the U.S.-China trade dispute causes semiconductor companies to wince and financial markets to wobble, while pushing us farther from a deal that would benefit both economies, the two largest in the world. We urge both sides to avoid further escalations, get back to the negotiating table, and reach a high-standard, enforceable, and sustainable agreement.”
