ASPI DC partnered with AmCham
On January 19th ASPI DC partnered with AmCham to convene a roundtable on ‘How Australia and the United States can Secure Semiconductor Supply Chains’, which focused on the recommendations of ASPI’s 2022 report Australia’s National Semiconductor Moonshot. The event was hosted in Washington DC with a virtual element for Australian participants, and attended by Australian Ambassador, Arthur Sinodinos.
Alex Capri, author of the ASPI 2022 report, moderated the two-part discussion with assistance from co-author, Robert Clark. The roundtable was attended by senior government officials from Australia and the US, industry and academia, and produced insights into the importance of a skilled workforce for the semiconductor supply chain. These findings have informed a subsequent report on talent pipeline development in aid of the national semiconductor moonshot, which will be published by ASPI in late 2023.
