WASHINGTON—Oct. 6, 2021—The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) today released the following statement from President and CEO John Neuffer in response to recent remarks by U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai regarding the U.S.-China trade relationship.
“SIA welcomes the Biden-Harris Administration’s new plan to tackle challenges facing the U.S.-China trade relationship, as well as its focus on ensuring U.S. trade policies protect the interests of American workers and businesses, including U.S. semiconductor companies. We continue to strongly believe tariffs on semiconductors and associated products are, in effect, a damaging tax on U.S. chipmakers and consumers. We welcome the Biden Administration’s decision to resume the tariff exclusion process, which is important to relieve unnecessary burdens on our economy, and look forward to providing input into this process.”
