Line inspection is still in progress.
US President Biden arrived at Samsung Semiconductor’s Pyeongtaek plant at 6:11 pm along with US Commerce Secretary Gina Raymond and US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.
President Yoon Seok-yeol, who was waiting on the first floor in advance, welcomed President Biden and his party along with Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong.
After that, the two leaders wrote their impressions of visiting the 3-nano process semiconductor wafer, which is about to be mass-produced by Samsung Electronics, instead of in the guest book.
After looking around the P1 production line that produces memory semiconductors such as DRAM and NAND flash behind me, I moved to the P3 production line, which is scheduled to be operated in the second half of the year.
In particular, the P3 is a line similar to the semiconductor factory Samsung is currently building in Texas, USA, so it is reported that President Biden showed great interest while looking around the production site.
Earlier, President Biden arrived at the US Air Force Base in Osan, Gyeonggi Province at 5:22 pm today.
At the site, South Korean Foreign Minister Park Jin personally welcomed President Biden, who visited Korea for the first time since taking office, with a state guest.
After the line inspection, the two leaders are expected to give a brief speech about semiconductors to the media shortly after.
It seems likely to reaffirm our two countries’ commitment to strengthening our technology and supply chain alliances.
It was delivered from Samsung Semiconductor’s Pyeongtaek plant, which President Biden has visited so far.
