    KUALA LUMPUR – 4 March 2022 – Semiconductor supply chain sustainability and resilience
    will come into sharp focus 21-23 June 2022 as SEMICON Southeast Asia, the region’s premier
    gathering of the semiconductor and microelectronics industry, returns to the Setia SPICE
    Convention Centre & Arena in Penang, Malaysia following a two-year hiatus due to the
    pandemic. Registration is open. “The rise of the cloud, 5G deployment, connected vehicles,
    and digitization have created unprecedented demand for high-performance computing,”

    said Linda Tan, president of SEMI Southeast Asia. “As the backbone of the connected
    world, the semiconductor industry must maintain sustainable balance of demand and supply

    to ensure the resiliency and flexibility of its supply chain. Insights into integrated supply chain networks are critical in enabling the industry to identify and manage any disruptions. SEMICON Southeast
    Asia 2022 will delve into this and much more as we continue our work to support industry
    players in Malaysia and around the region.”
    SEMICON Southeast Asia 2022 will commemorate Malaysia’s 50 th Year of Manufacturing
    Excellence and celebrate Penang’s reputation as the Silicon Valley of the East, built on decades
    of manufacturing excellence and industrial experience.
    Themed Forward as One – Building A Resilient and Sustainable Electronics Supply Chain in
    Southeast Asia, SEMICON Southeast Asia 2022 will gather industry experts for the latest
    developments, innovations and trends across the semiconductor supply chain. Semiconductor
    manufacturing equipment companies, private-and-public partners and industry players will
    connect to explore new collaboration and growth opportunities.
    “The electrical and electronics (E&E) industry is the cornerstone and strength of Malaysia’s
    manufacturing sub-sector, and the sector has grown tremendously, accelerated by the demands
    for semiconductors and chips during the pandemic,” said Datuk Arham Abdul Rahman, Chief
    Executive Officer of the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA). “MIDA is
    honoured to have worked with SEMI for the past eight years to promote and update our industry
    stakeholders on the technological advancements. We continue to value this partnership since
    the exposure to emerging trends and industry networking opportunities offered and gained at
    previous SEMICONs have been important to our prominent E&E industry players.”
    “MIDA is committed to expanding our manufacturing ecosystem by encouraging and pursuing
    high-quality, high-technology investments driven by global digitisation in this industry in order to
    strengthen Malaysia’s supply chain, product innovation and talent development capabilities,”
    Rahman said. “SEMI Southeast Asia 2022 is perfectly aligned with our aspirations of
    encouraging the development of the industry through proactive and guided measures while
    allowing potential investors to explore Malaysia’s competitive advantages as an ideal
    investment destination.”
    As part of Malaysia’s jubilee celebration, attendees at SEMICON Southeast Asia 2022 will
