Other brands such as Intel and Samsung have also announced the establishment of factories to boost the production of these plants in the United States, although experts indicated that TSMC will continue to conduct research and development in Taiwan, which will not benefit the North American country as Biden wishes. However, the $ 50 billion stimulus does not exclude international companies.
Also, the plant in the US will benefit TSMC because 67% of its customers are from North America, 17% are Asian, and 6% are representatives in Europe and the Middle East.
