Intel opens China chip plant

Written by


$2.5 billion
Chipmaker Intel has opened its first chip fab in China on Tuesday. The $2.5 billion fab is located in Dalian it was first announced back in 2007.

Intel CEO Paul Otellini told reporters that Intel has been present in China for the past quarter of a century and that it "has been investing and innovating in China with China and for China." Several weeks ago Otellini warned that the US was at risk of losing its technological edge and called on business leaders to invest in the US tech infrastructure.

The construction of the plant was plagued by delays and rumours that Intel might scale down or even scrap the project. In addition to Intel, some two dozen companies have also made substantial investments in Dalian in an effort to position themselves for cooperation with Intel. Intel has already confirmed that it will work with more than 80 suppliers in Dalian.

So, Otellini was obviously right in saying that investments in new fabs and manufacturing infrastructure generate economic growth and development, it's just that he was talking about the other side of the Pacific.

I hope the Chinese government didn't knock peoples homes down to make way for the fab, that's usually the case when a new building goes up in china.

I think you are mixing this up with the fabs being built on illegally occupied Palestinian land in Israel.

No this is something different, it was on the news a few years ago, it showed people living in the Chinese equivalent of the Indian slums and they were being evicted from their homes to make way for building project which was part of the Beijing Olympics, and if they didn't leave their homes then the workers simply bulldozed the homes down, regardless of whether they were still inside or not. Then the news reporter tried to speak infront of the camera in Beijing, but he only got about 15 seconds of speak through the mic before a group of plain clothed police in a white car pulled up and tried to take the equipment off of the crew.

Actually that is not the case at all. China has special places for huge investments and of course has a very cheap work force.

The difference here is China is a sovereign country and we have no right to interfere in what they do...

Sorry but Israel, according to the borders it occupies, is in no way a legal state. Even if it were, they exist because American subsidies paid for by tax payers.
