Digital is the make-or-break issue. There is no digital without chips. Yet today we depend on chips from Asia. We will present a European Chips Act, to create a ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ chip ecosystem from design to production. This is about our competitiveness and tech sovereignty. #SOTEU

And the brexiteers thought it was all about fish! Wonder if weโ€™ll be part of the ecosystem or be left in the cold beholden to China or EU?

This is rhetoric against multilateralism and globalization. A lot of countries in Asia including China rely very much on Europe and they donโ€™t fearmonger like this.
