Alleged factory construction: TSMC contradicts report in WSJ about Singapore fab


Yesterday, a report by the Wall Street Journal that TSMC would build a factory complex in Singapore caused a sensation. TSMC contradicts these statements: So far there are no plans for such a project, they say. The Taiwanese are already represented in Singapore through a joint venture with NXP.

The origin of the rumors, which the Wall Street Journal is now picking up, goes back a little longer. More than a week ago, Taiwanese media reported that Singapore wants to attract new investors from the semiconductor industry. According to the Liberty Times, TSMC was also invited for this. TSMC diplomatically states that there are no plans for a factory in Singapore, but of course nothing is ever ruled out.
