Chip Shortage Brings Frustration but More Business to Industry’s Middlemen

TAIPEI—When buyers need chips in a pinch, they turn to Erik Drown, a middleman who is able to source scarce parts. Asked recently by a client to help find 1,200 chips in a matter of days, Mr. Drown scoured his industry contacts. He couldn’t find all the needed chips but was able to get preliminary price quotes on about half. It is a painful truth for businesses world-wide: They need chips but can’t find them. Making matters worse is that the typical problem solvers—chip brokers and middlemen such as Mr. Drown—find themselves in some cases just as perplexed and empty-handed.

According to Siu, concern about anti-Asian hate didn’t become mainstream until late last year or the beginning of this year, and many Asian Americans decided to move last summer. Some Asian Americans have opted to continue work or study at U.S.-based companies and universities, despite the 13- to 16-hour time difference. hile some moved abroad during the pandemic, Siu said only a fraction of the Asian American community is able to do so. t wasn’t every Asian American who can have access to that kind of mobility,” she said. She chose Nepal, where she’s been working remotely ever since, and her time there has changed her perspective on happiness and her Asian American identity.

HONG KONG—As Western economies roar back to life, a fresh wave of Covid-19 clusters in Asia—where vaccination campaigns remain in their early stages—is creating new bottlenecks in the global supply chain, threatening to push up prices and weigh on the post-pandemic recovery. If such problems continue—and get worse—they could weigh on global growth. For much of last year, China, Taiwan and many other parts of Asia kept the pandemic in check better than the U.S. and Europe and limited some of the economic damage. But as vaccination rates have risen in the West, governments have started rolling back restrictions and economies are revving up. Immunization efforts in Asia, meanwhile, have lagged behind and authorities have largely kept in place tougher border controls to keep the virus out.

REUTERS/Ann WangChina's government said on Friday that it welcomed Taiwanese to come and get vaccinated against COVID-19 and called on Taiwan to remove obstacles and allow its people to receive the "highly effective" Chinese shots. Taiwan people can come to China to get vaccinated against COVID-19, provided they strictly comply with China's pandemic control measures, the office said. About 62,000 Taiwanese had been vaccinated in China as of May 31, it added, though many Taiwanese live and work there already. Only 3% of Taiwan's 23.5 million people have received at least one shot, though millions of doses are on order.

Susan Walsh/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoUnited States Trade Representative Katherine Tai discussed trade and investment issues with Taiwan minister John Deng on Thursday and agreed to convene a meeting of the countries' Trade And Investment Framework Agreement Council "in coming weeks", Tai's office said in a statement. "Ambassador Tai emphasized the importance of the U.S.-Taiwan trade and investment relationship and explained the Biden-Harris administration's worker-centered trade priorities," USTR said. Taiwan has long angled for a free trade deal with the United States, but trade and investment talks between the two have been stalled since the Obama administration. The outcome could affect trade talks with Washington.

State media touted the exercise days after a US military aircraft landed in Taiwan with US senators and vaccines for the island. The Chinese military has conducted an amphibious landing exercise in waters near Taiwan amid renewed tensions between Beijing and Washington.

Imports leapt 40.9%, against economists’ expectations for a 25.7% rise and an increase of 26.4% in April.

Central News Agency/Pool via REUTERSChina's Defence Ministry on Tuesday denounced a brief weekend visit by three U.S. senators to Chinese-claimed Taiwan on a U.S. military aircraft as a "vile political provocation" that was irresponsible and dangerous. "The U.S. senators visited Taiwan by military plane, using the Taiwan issue to engage in a 'political show', challenging the one-China principle and trying to achieve the so-called goal of 'using Taiwan to control China'", it said. "This was an extremely vile political provocation". The United States must immediately stop any kind of official exchanges or military relations with Taiwan, it added. "If anyone dares to separate Taiwan from China, the Chinese People's Liberation Army will resolutely fight head-on at all costs and resolutely defend the country's unity and territorial integrity".

U.S., Taiwan to Launch Trade Talks

The Biden administration is launching trade and investment talks with Taiwan, advancing U.S. ties with Taipei and likely adding to frictions with the island’s nemesis, Beijing. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told a House committee on Monday about the plans for trade talks. Mr. Blinken declined to elaborate and referred questions about details to Katherine Tai, the U.S. trade representative, who wasn’t at the hearing. Taiwan for years has sought closer engagement on economic issues, and in the past year the State Department has sponsored lower-level discussions on closer economic and business relations. U.S. ties with Taiwan, a Cold War ally, are a lightning rod in the testy relations between Washington and Beijing, which sees Taiwan as a breakaway province and vows to use military force if needed to annex the island.

REUTERS/Tyrone SiuU.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday signaled a possible resumption of trade and investment talks with Taiwan stalled since the Obama administration, but gave no indication of any willingness to pursue a full-scale trade pact Taipei has been seeking. At a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the U.S. State Department's annual budget request, Blinken was asked about the Biden administration's position on a bilateral trade agreement with Taiwan. She said the administration had probably not made a decision on whether to take the much larger step of pursuing a bilateral trade agreement with Taiwan, however. TIFA talks stalled after former President Barack Obama left office in 2016 and his successor Donald Trump’s trade representative, Robert Lighthizer, focused on trade talks with China.
