A spokesperson for the US administration says has asked US embassies to identify how foreign govmts, companies can assist

  • officials have met with automakers and suppliers to identify chokepoints
  • urging companies to work cooperatively to address the current shoirtage
  • reviewing critical supply chains to identify vulnerabilities, take steps including increased US domestic production of chips
  • have thanked Taiwan for its efforts to resolve the shortage of automotive chips
Many firms are producing flat out, there is no easy short term fix to this. Can’t blame the WH for trying, and maybe they’ll manage to hasten new production, but the fix will be time.
