The truth is that the Japanese government is the most foolish one in the current situation of semiconductors in Japan. In recent years, it has become increasingly clear that whoever controls the semiconductor industry controls the industry, and whoever controls the semiconductor industry controls the nation.
The United States will never allow the semiconductor industry to grow and flourish in China. For this reason, it is strongly encouraging Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan to do so. China has surpassed the U.S. in IT software technology, especially in the use of AI.
In the future, power semiconductors will become a central issue in semiconductor security. The U.S. will never allow the rise of China. However, the United States will not allow Japan to win the war alone, but only in the peripheral areas such as semiconductor manufacturing equipment and inspection equipment. This is an area of concern.
