Semiconductors are a weapon in the U.S.-China trade war. Can this chipmaker serve both sides?

BY EAMON BARRETT

What a difference two months can make. In May, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC), the world’s largest chipmaker, lost the business of Huawei Technologies—its biggest Chinese customer and the source of 13% of its revenue—as a casualty of geopolitical jockeying between superpowers. But TSMC shareholders took the loss in stride. And by late July, after a stumble by rival Intel, TSMC’s stock had risen almost 50% since May, making it one of the world’s 10 most valuable companies

As tensions between Taiwan and China continue to escalate, satellite images reportedly show amphibious armoured vehicles and mobile missile launchers massing at military bases near the island nation.

Though Taiwan, a country of 25 million people, is happy as an independent democracy, Beijing insists it is a “breakaway province” and “inviolate” Chinese territory, repeatedly stating it will use force to bring the island back under China’s control.

THE US AND THE MEKONG REGION: COOPERATION FOR SUSTAINABLE AND INCLUSIVE ECONOMIC GROWTH

By Satu Limaye, East West Center

HONOLULU (29 July 2020)—In recent years, relations with Southeast Asia have emerged as an important pillar of US engagement with the Indo-Pacific region. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is central to US foreign policy in the region, with a growing focus on the five countries bound together by the Mekong River—Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Japan has signed a ¥36.6 billion ($345 million) loan agreement with Vietnam to provide the Southeast Asian country with six patrol boats to boost its maritime law enforcement capabilities, as Beijing steps up its claims in the South China Sea.

The deal comes as the United States has toughened its stance against China over what Washington says is Beijing’s “completely unlawful” maritime claims across most of the strategic waterway and its “bullying” of Vietnam and other claimant states in a bid to control offshore resources.

Why is the South China Sea such a hotspot?

Why are there so many tensions over this body of water? What is the ‘nine-dash line’? And why does it matter to Australia?

By James Massola, The Sidney Morning Herald

AUGUST 3, 2020

Australia’s declaration that there is no legal basis for China’s claims to most of the South China Sea has been a long time coming.

For years, Canberra has carefully urged restraint, called on all states to respect the rules-based international order, insisted that it took no sides in the many competing territorial claims for the sea and urged respect for a 2016 international court ruling on the status of disputed features of the South China Sea.

But the decision to say there is no legal basis for China’s claim to 90 per cent of the islands and waters – which fall within the so-called “nine-dash line” – is part of a gradual change in Australia’s approach to the dispute, and one that is likely to be quietly welcomed by neighbouring countries in south-east Asia.

by Tim Rist on 5 August 2020

  • Vietnam’s $9.3 billion Can Gio Tourist City was recently approved for construction within the buffer zone of a UNESCO Mangrove Biosphere Reserve in Ho Chi Minh City.
  • Developed by Vingroup, Vietnam’s largest private company, the project will require the reclamation of a huge amount of land along Can Gio’s coast.
  • Environmentalists and activists have petitioned the government to reconsider the project, but Vingroup is a key part of the country’s drive toward industrialization and home-grown world-class companies.

Chữa lành

Trời mưa, ngồi nhìn cây cối, nghe tiếng mưa, tự dưng bật cười. Nhớ hồi xưa, cực thích câu nói: “Mặt Đất mỉm cười bằng những đoá hoa”, giờ lại thấy : “Thượng Đế thông qua thiên nhiên để chữa lành con người, và từ đó, con người sẽ học theo cách đó, để tiếp tục chữa lành những người khác nữa”. Mọi thứ đều rất kỳ diệu.
