WASHINGTON, May 4 (Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Commerce is pressuring Taiwanese companies to prioritize the needs of U.S. automakers in order to alleviate the short-term chip shortage, the U.S. Secretary of the Board said on Tuesday. Trade Gina Raimondo.

She added that in the longer term, increased investment was needed to produce more semiconductors in the United States, and other critical supply chains needed to be relocated, especially to allied countries.

“We are working hard to see if we can get the Taiwanese to put the needs of our auto companies first, because there are so many American jobs at stake,” said Gina Raimondo.

The US Secretary of Commerce added that “the medium to long term solution, however, is very simply to make more chips in America.”

Since February, President Joe Biden’s administration has been pushing Taiwan to look into the matter, but automakers have reported no increase in chip supply.
