    Semiconductors, China and Trade Promotion Authority Enactment: what it all means, and why it's important. As technologists, it is easy to go about the day without ever thinking about the impact of politics on technology. After all ... technology is science and … science is about facts. But the existence of technology is also largely about TRADE ... International trade. And that means having a seat at the global policy tables is critical. In this video we have a conversation about this with John Neuffer, who is President and CEO of the SIA. We talk about what's going on in Washington, D.C. and then take a global view with a focus on China's. We also look at the implications of China's plan to develop a domestic semiconductor industry that is globally competitive with $100B of support and more.
