According to Chinese customs, the volume of imports of equipment for the manufacture of microcircuits reached almost 5 billion dollars in the June-July period, an increase of 70% compared to 2.9 billion dollars in the same period last year.

Most of the imports came from the Netherlands and Japan, which will soon impose restrictions on the export of equipment for chip manufacturing in an effort to slow down China’s technological progress.

These restrictions mean buyers of certain instruments must obtain licenses from the Dutch and Japanese governments. While it is not yet clear how much of this growth is due to the constraints on tool exports, the move demonstrates China’s determination to deliver an unbridled expansion in chip production.
