Taiwan's new core technologies list will not affect its chip companies' business, Economy Minister Wang Mei-hua said on Wednesday, after the government unveiled 22 technologies that it identified as needing "urgent protection". Taiwan makes the majority of the world's most advanced semiconductor chips, used in everything from smartphones to electric vehicles, and the government has long worried about Chinese efforts to copy its success, including through industrial espionage and poaching engineers. The list of 22 protected technologies announced by Taiwan's top science agency on Tuesday spanned five sectors: defence, space, agriculture, semiconductors, and information security.

Reuters last month reported Nvidia had told customers in China it was delaying the launch of a new China-focused AI chip until the first quarter of next year.
