    Lithuania and Taiwan are negotiating establishing microchip factories in the small European country.

    Quoting from an article* in Politico:

    "Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) — with an outsize 54 percent share of global foundry revenue in 2020 — has faced pressure from many foreign governments to diversify its production. "

    and again :

    “Taiwan is playing its economic cards smartly,” Mathieu Duchâtel, director of the Asia Program at the Paris-based Institut Montaigne said. “Clearly, Taiwan has something concrete to offer to strengthen the European semiconductor ecosystem, and the message is that this is linked to deepening Taiwan's international space — so this is a form of economic statecraft.”

    end quotes

    It appears Taiwan may have found a partner with Lithuania. With all the disruptions to chip supplies, it seems practical to expand production locations to limit such problems.
