TAIPEI -- Top U.S. memory chipmaker Micron Technology is in talks with governments around the world, including in Japan, Taiwan and Europe, over expanding its manufacturing footprint as part of a $150 billion, 10-year investment plan, a senior executive told Nikkei Asia in an interview.

Manish Bhatia, executive vice president of Micron's global operations, stressed however that his company's global expansion push is aimed at keeping pace with growing demand and will not contribute to an oversupply in the memory chip market.
