China's Efforts to Recruit Semiconductor Talent Hit by Taiwan Ban

China might have recently lost access to another vital aspect of its efforts to build out its semiconductor industry: skilled workers. Nikkei Asia Review today reported that Taiwan, has told recruitment firms to remove listings for jobs based in China.

According to the report, Taiwan's Labor Ministry recently sent a notice to those firms saying that they "may no longer post openings for jobs located in China, especially those involving critical industries, such as integrated circuits and semiconductors." Firms that violate those rules will be fined, with jobs related to the chip industry carrying larger fines, Nikkei Asia Review said. The new rule will also force multinational companies to re-post jobs in China under their Chinese subsidiaries.
